Beaver Creek Park Construction Pictures
Construction is progressing well as mother nature has been cooperative. All three fields are being prepared for topsoil, the berms along the perimeter are almost finished and awaiting topsoil. The foundation for the bathrooms and maintenance building has been poured with some blocks installed. The remaining block has been delivered so in addition to starting the upper level of block for the bathrooms and maintenance building the excavation of the pavilion base will begin followed by the floor being poured and concrete block installed. Yes the rain has slowed the sire preparation process, but much work has been done to date. The planting of trees and shrubs will begin in the spring. More pictures very soon.
