The 30×40 foot pavilion will have retractable sides for multi-season use, a fireplace and a single bathroom. The project also includes grills, a drinking fountain, path connections to the Nature Center and Playscape, a parking lot expansion with solar-powered streetlights and rain gardens. This will serve as the new home base for the Nature Day Camp, which is available for all ages, preschool to adult.
