Pavilion in the pond
The building on the dock in the pond near Thomas Marr Lake in Marr Park has recently been completed, with railings installed for safety reasons. The building was added to the project that drained the pond earlier this year and reconstructed the bottom. A peninsula was built, and the pond will be cleaned of weeds and recontoured. The project cost about $110,000. No property tax money went into the project, with funding coming from a $50,000 Washington County Riverboat Foundation grant, a Fish Habitat grant of $13,500, and funding from user fees from the park.
