Perk Up the Park Pavilion Project

A very generous and anonymous donor approached the town to build a pavilion in the Athletic Park. This pavilion will include shelter to protect park users from sun and inclement weather, storage rooms for sports clubs to keep gear safe and tidy, and a concession area for selling and serving food and drink at nonprofit community or sporting events.

The donor committed to contribute $3 for every $1 raised by the community up to a project total of about $400,000. Thank you to our generous community, we have raised the funds needed and will break ground on the pavilion in the spring!

   

Park Pavilion FAQs
 
♦  What will the pavilion look like and where will it be located? 

The below design and location of the pavilion was preferred by stakeholders and the public and will be refined for final design. Town Council approved moving forward with this design during a November 20, 2019 Special Meeting.

♦  Who will use the new pavilion? 

The pavilion will be available to the community. It can be used by sports groups, community groups, and individuals wanting a place to sit. Current special event policies will apply - for reservations and events over 75 people you must apply for a permit.

♦  What else will be part of this project?

We have gathered a list of desires from the community and will address them as funding allows. We hope to at least spiff up the existing restroom and include a few desired amenities like a water bottle filling station. See the meeting notes from the November 14th public meeting here for the full list of requests.

♦  What is the project timeline? 

The Town plans to publish a Request for Bids before the end of February 2020 to find a qualified contractor.  We plan to break ground in the spring and finish before the end of the year.
