The Pavilion will serve as a “family room,” a gathering space for the community to take part in classes, meals, awards, exercise, meet ups, entertainment (movie, music, drama) and shelter (from rain and sun). The flexible design will allow for picnic tables to be placed on the slightly raised platform for a community meal or removed for an educator or local theater performance to be center stage with the picnic tables scattered around the grassy lawn. The amphitheater seating will provide easy setup. This heart of the park will unify visitors seeking comfort in the natural forested environment with a lake view. Having an established space will encourage more organizations, including our own, to offer free programming at the park.

FVR has raised $310,000 for the cost of the project that includes design, engineering, permitting, grading, construction, power, picnic tables and amphitheater seating.

Placement of Pavilion is in the north east corner of the open green. It will have ADA access.

David Harmon Architecture created the unique design and Table Rock Custom Builders is helping with construction planning. Both are Valdese based. The structure will blend in with nature and be located in the northeast corner of the Open Green along the greenway. It will also include ADA access.

Example of three rows of seating that will blend in with natural area and be ready for educational lessons, presentations and entertainment.
