Optimist Park

510 North 3rd Street
Belleville, IL 62222

Optimist Park is located just across 3rd St. from Hough Park and continues to the corner of 2nd and "F" Street. Beautiful art sculptures   enhance the Richland Creek Greenway trail that goes right through the middle of the park. This linear park is just the ticket for a leisurely stroll along the creek taking in some of nature's best plants and animal life found along the creek. This is an excellent outdoor educational setting for anyone interested in nature and all her beauty. Take time and discover Optimist Park, you'll be glad you did!
