Sycamore children asked to name new park

SYCAMORE – The Sycamore Park District wants local students to name a new 4.95-acre park in the Sycamore Creek subdivision.

District leaders are hosting a naming contest. Entries cannot be the names of any living individual but should have a relationship to Sycamore history or Sycamore itself, according to a news release. Students will submit a short essay explaining their choice.

The park, in northeast Sycamore, will be deeded to the park district by the Sycamore Creek Homeowners Association, said the news release states. Association leaders took made the move after the developer went out of business to make sure the space will be deeded to the park district.

The Sycamore Park District Citizens Advisory Committee will judge the entries and suggest a winner to park board members. The child who makes the winning entry will receive a $1,000 savings bond.

The entry deadline is 4 p.m. Nov. 8.

Entry information has been provided to children in kindergarten through sixth grade at Sycamore School District 427 and St. Mary’s Catholic School. School children interested in receiving the entry information should email Bart Desch at bartd@sycamoreparkdistrict.com.
