Park pavilion changes

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Visitors to Monett's South Park for July 4th festivities will see a few changes because of the construction plans for the new Monett Area YMCA facility. The picnic pavilion near the old Jones property, acquired for the YMCA building, was moved.

Park Superintendent Russ Balmas said a picnic area was needed by the tennis courts, and combining both scenarios made a good solution for both.

The finished pavilion, seen after the move, sits on a new concrete pad, raising the pavilion by 12 inches, and a handicapped accessible walk added from the parking lot into the picnic area. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff]
