Yaley Pavilion – Palo Cedro Park



The goal of the project was to create a venue at the park for music events & wedding events and other activities that require a stage area where many people can view the activity. This was accomplished by working with local Rotarians and contractors to

  1. Work with Architect to design the structure and get permitting done at the County.
  2. Clear/Excavate the area of construction and grade the area where the structure would be built
  3. Work with Contractor and Rotarians to provide the materials and labor necessary to build the Pavilion.
    The work has now been completed on the Pavilion. See Photos above

Rotarian Chris Carter’s (Redding East Rotary) company Meeks Building Supply provided all the construction material for the project at a discounted rate. Tom Watson Construction did the construction and completed the work in November of 2018. See Photos Above
