SYCAMORE, IL –May 20, 2022– If you’re looking to settle into a new home this summer while school is out and warm weather is in, then you’ll want to visit Reston Ponds in Sycamore where Shodeen Homes’ has ranch and two-story homes under construction with summer delivery dates.
“While conducive weather and children being out of school are obvious benefits to moving in the summer, there are other advantages,” said Anna Harmon, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Shodeen Homes, family-owned-and-operated builder for more than 60 years. “Local festivals, park district programs, farmer’s markets and other events are abundant in summer months giving families the opportunity to explore their new community. In addition, neighbors are outdoors barbecuing, hosting block parties, walking, biking and more, making it an ideal time for introductions and building friendships.”
Located just north of I-88 and east of Peace Road in Sycamore, Reston Ponds is a master-planned community featuring six ponds, a new 12-acre Sycamore Park District community park and Southeast Elementary School, part of Sycamore School District 427, which was rated in the top 10% among more than 500 school districts in the state of Illinois. The community is within walking distance of downtown Sycamore and is minutes from the I-88 employment corridor, Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine.
“The Sycamore Park District owns and operates an 18-hole golf course with leagues and lessons, as well as the community pool, splash fountain and the Brian Bemis Family Dog Park,” Harmon said. “There is also the Sycamore Family Sports Center with go karting, soccer and batting cages and mini-golf and let’s not forget, the Sycamore Speedway, which hosts stock car racing and other events on weekends.”
Other activities to enjoy this summer are the Sycamore Farmer’s Market starting Tuesday, June 7th on Edward Street; Sip and Savor Taste Event hosted by the Sycamore Park District on July 9th; Fizz Ehrler Memorial Car Show July 31st; DeKalb Corn Fest August 26-28th; and Ribs Rhythm and Brew Fest August 27th.
