Our History

Belvedere Park began as a quiet neighborhood in the early 1950s and quickly became a thriving suburb with schools, parks and a shopping center. The main shopping center, Belvedere Plaza, was anchored by Rich's Department Store and included shops like Kinney's Shoes and Three Sisters Clothing. The Belvedere Motor Motel was known for a TV in every room, and the Belvedere Theatre hosted family-friendly movies every weekend!

Historical Sources

While many of the esteemed stores of the 1950s have retired, the Belvedere community is still vibrant and active. Our neighborhood is home to multiple shops, restaurants and parks (including Shoal Creek). We recognize the rich history of this area and want to create the next chapter of Belvedere Park with historical integrity and  togetherness.
