Riverview Park Chapel Shelter

The restoration of the Riverview Park Chapel Shelter, now the most requested shelter in the city parks, was completed in June 2008.

The building, which had been closed to the public and slated for demolition in 2005, was completely refurbished to make it accessible and enjoyable for park users. Improvements included new flooring, an updated kitchen, handicap-accessible restrooms, the recreation of the historic steeple and dormers, and a return to the historically-inspired design. The landscape was also restored, with a new trail connection, removal of invasive species, and the creation of new garden beds.
