Work is progressing on the new pavilion at Oscar Kristofferson Park in Baxter.

Baratto Brothers Construction broke ground on the project in April. Once completed, the pavilion will have a kitchen area, stone columns, and a new patio area.

The city is proposing to match the new picnic shelter, kitchen floor plan and materials to create a structure matching the one constructed at Whipple Beach Park. Baxter staff researched rental numbers to see how many people were using the pavilion in order to determine the size and seating requirements for a new one.

The project is slated for completion before the Fourth of July.
