Zion Park District receives 35 acres of donated land dedicated to open space
You may notice a new sign for the Zion Park District on Lewis Ave near the corner of Champart St. This is the newest addition to the park land that the District holds and cares for. Thank you to the DeVito family who have generously donated 35 acres at the southwest corner of Rte. 173 and Lewis Ave. Mr. DeVito is a local businessman, owner of Dynacoil, just down the road. This property has a history of development ideas but now has new life as a conservancy for open space for the community of Zion. The name you will see on the new sign, “Kellogg Creek Conservancy”, identifies that it will be held as green open space in perpetuity for the community. The addition of limited site amenities is on a long range capital list as the District has spent the last year creating a strategic plan. We will be keeping this beautiful area in the plans to create access in the long term. The Zion Park District would like to extend a big ‘thank you’ to the DeVito family for sharing this piece of land with the community of Zion.
