Previously 2,000 square feet, the pavilion was constructed to attain LEED gold-certification and is now double its original size. Features include a kitchen, storage space, bathrooms and drinking fountains. Equipping park users with a practical activity space, rain or shine, the facility’s large four-fold doors allow the pavilion to operate as either an open-air or air-conditioned space.
The handicap-accessible picnic table area and playground further complement the space, providing people of all abilities an opportunity to enjoy the park. Circling the large playing field, the new concrete walkways, updated fencing, fresh swing sets, landscaping and irrigation upgrades add to the park’s functionality and aesthetic.
Additionally, the new handicap-accessible playgrounds are separated based on age level, serving as a dedicated space for children ages two through five and five to twelve.
Preserving the waterfront park for generations to come, the old seawall was replaced with a hybrid, living shoreline structure.
