Social events in Bellevue Park run the gamut from holiday celebrations to food swaps, yoga classes and war games.  Many of these events take place in the Bellevue Park Community Building. Any member of the Bellevue Park Association can hold a social event in the Community Building, provided that the event is open to all members of the Bellevue Park Association. 

You can see what’s happening at the Community Building by checking the calendar, below. 

Set in the heart of Bellevue Park surrounded by mature trees, the Bellevue Park Community Building, which is located at 143 Briarcliff Road, is also available for rent by private parties of up to 70 people.  Renters can enjoy the use of a fully equipped kitchen, one large room, and one smaller room (as well as a bathroom). There are 6 to 7 off-street parking spaces at the community building as well as parking along nearby Oakwood Road. Renters are permitted to use the adjacent grounds for outdoor activities, provided that guests observe the building rules.

The rental fee for a member of the Bellevue Park Association in good standing is $150.00 per day plus a $100.00 refundable security deposit.  

Non-members of the Bellevue Park Association can also rent the Community Building, as long as the rental is sponsored by a member in good standing.  For non-members with a sponsor, the rental fee is $200.00 per day plus a refundable security deposit of $125.00.

The contact person for all building events and rentals is Jack Krill, who can be contacted by phone at 234-9796 or by e-mail at krilljp@comcast.net.  Please note that separate checks are required for the rental fee and the security deposit. 


Bellevue Park Association policy on political and non-political events including public officials  

Any resident in good standing may rent, or be a sponsor for a rental of, the building for a political event for a specific candidate. This would include “meet and greet” events and speeches.

Any resident in good standing may sponsor a “candidates’ night,” if all candidates for an office are invited and reasonable efforts to obtain their presence have been made.  No rental fee would be charged.

Any resident in good standing may sponsor a “town hall” meeting with an incumbent public official.  No rental fee would be charged.  However, if such meeting occurs within 90 days prior to a contested election in which the official is a candidate, it will be deemed a political event and a rental fee will be charged.
