A popular Webb City park is adding more space for group gatherings.
A second pavilion is under construction in King Jack Park. It sits just east of the existing one added just a couple of years ago.
Big demand to use a shelter in the park prompted the move to add a second pavilion.
“It’ll be a replica of the pavilion, but it’s going to have a different theme,” explained Webb City administrator Carl Francis. “They’re going to theme it off of the street car, caboose, and it’ll be more of a rail car-type theme.”
The Dawson Heritage Foundation is underwriting most of the cost of the project. The city will spend about $15,000 on concrete and other supplies.
The new pavilion should open by next spring.
