The Rotary Club of Washington and the City of Washington are partnering to renovate one of our region’s architectural gems, the Main Pavilion in the Washington Park.
Time Till Next Update
The historic pavilion was built in 1907, one hundred and ten years ago and has not had a major upgrade to the site since the original construction. For more than one hundred years, the main pavilion has held a special place in the hearts of our community. It has helped us celebrate our weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, class reunions, birthdays and family picnics. It more recent years, the pavilion has become a place of celebration for the entire Washington Community. It has hosted musical events, block parties, scouting activities, sport team parties, fundraising events, and of course, theatre productions.
The renovation will be completed in a few stages over the next few years. Our goal is to complete the project by June of 2018 and the total cost for the project is estimated to be around $800,000.
Some highlights of the planned improvements are:
Roof Completed, Dec 2017
New stone facing to the lower level
Repaving roads around the pavilion
New community catering kitchen for events
Upgrade of all electrical service & lighting
Restoration of floors, ceiling, walks & railings
Restoring the original front stairway design
