Description

Park Rustic-style pavilion constructed by the WPA in 1938. Rectangular in plan, the building is constructed of rustic stone with chamfered timber beams and has the form of an open pavilion with enclosed ends. The roof is covered with wood shingles and is
hipped on the north end, while the south end has a parapetted gable with a massive stone chimney. There were two outdoor fire places on the south and one on the interior that have been infilled with stone. Flooring is stone and concrete. A former kitchen is
located at the north end with two arched windows and a door. A matching restroom building was located to the south but has been demolished.
