Pavilion at Stone Tables Receives Preservation Dallas Award
The Conservancy donated $113,000 to the City of Dallas for the pavilion restorations. The project included the removal and replacement of the existing pavilion floor with a new concrete and flagstone slab in the same style as the existing stone work. A concrete base and flagstone border walk was installed around the pavilion, as well as a similar pathway to the parking area. The current composition roof will be replaced with a standing seam metal roof.
In addition, all damaged roof decking, structural beams and masonry were repaired. The electrical and lighting system was updated, the stone work pressure-washed, the water fountain updated, and the woodwork got a fresh coat of paint.
The remaining phases of the stone tables restoration are being designed by volunteer landscape architects and will go in front of the Park Board this year.
