EAST PEORIA (WEEK) -- After nearly a decade of planning, Levee Park is slowly coming together. And in just a few months, city leaders say the stage will be set - literally.

It all started with the installation of reading gardens in 2018.

EAST PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — The East Peoria City Council approved phase two of the Levee Park Development Tuesday.

The Community Foundation Board has been working to raise funds for the projects, and recently the city was awarded a $500,000 grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity for the project.

EAST PEORIA, IL – The East Peoria Community Foundation received $15,000 to address hunger in East Peoria, as a result of the COVID-19 virus and resulting economic crisis.  These funds are part of Caterpillar Foundation’s $8.5 million commitment to remediate the impact of global COVID-19.  Their generosity is making a huge impact right here at the birthplace of Caterpillar Inc.

EAST PEORIA - A reading garden will likely be the first piece of development in the triangular piece of land known as the Civic Plaza Park adjacent to the Fondulac District Library.

The Fondulac District Library owns a rectangular piece of the 1.7 acres in the Civic Plaza, and the city owns the rest. The goal is to keep the area a green space, which the city would maintain.
