City, Rotary to Celebrate Wick Park Renovation

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The city of Youngstown and the Rotary Club of Youngstown will formally introduce the newly renovated Wick Park Pavilion during an event Wednesday at noon at Wick Park.

The program will include a presentation regarding the building’s history, background and highlights of the renovations as well as be tours of the renovated pavilion.

The Rotary Club of Youngstown raised more than $350,000 to support renovations to the pavilion, which the club chose as its Centennial Campaign project to mark its 100th anniversary in 2015.

Renovations to the pavilion, built in 1957, include installation of a new roof, gutters and heating/ventilation/air-conditioning system. Other upgrades include a new electrical system, windows, bathroom and handicap access.

“Rotary chose this project because of the park’s historical location and the pavilion’s great use by the entire community,” said Sharon Letson, executive director of Youngstown CityScape and project manager for the pavilion restoration. “Now we hope the public will come and see the steps that have been taken to beautify and secure this important structure, making the pavilion and its facilities functional, accessible and contemporary.”
