As one of the many exciting initiatives passed on the 27th of last month, the Beach Pavilion is one that will bring a much-needed amenity to many at Lake Quivira. The pavilion project has been designed and proposed by Mothers’ Club and is being funded in whole by the Mothers’ Club fundraising efforts, in concert with generous matching support from the Lake Quivira Foundation.
The permanent beach pavilion, which will replace the temporary white tent that comes in each summer for Summer Rec, will sit just to the south of the current tent location, and immediately behind the playground on the beach. The pavilion will be a permanent architectural structure, designed to complement the other permanent LQ structures in the immediate vicinity. The footprint of the structure will be similar in scale to the temporary tent, but will bring year-round use to the beach site.
Use of the pavilion will be available for all members and will be functionally operated by the Country Club. While details are still to be resolved, it will be an additional amenity facility that can be scheduled and reserved for events through the Club and open to any members when not reserved.
The pavilion will be a welcome, year-round addition to the beach area and certainly a benefit to the kids of the LQ Summer Rec program.
