Cedar Springs junior Kevin Galloway stands in front of his Eagle Scout project, a new 20×36-foot picnic pavilion in Morley Park.

 

The dream was a long time coming, but construction was completed last weekend on a new 20 x 36-foot pavilion in Morley Park.

The pavilion is the Eagle Scout project headed up by Scout Kevin Galloway, a junior at Cedar Springs High School this year. He originally wanted to repair the gazebo in Morley Park, but when that one was deemed structurally unsafe, he came up with the idea to build a new one.

His goal was to build a 20 x 36 pavilion that would be maintenance free and fit 8-10 picnic tables. Over $18,000 was raised for the project. A groundbreaking was held in April.

Jeff Gust, of Gust Construction, and his employee, Todd, organized the volunteer members through out the day last Saturday. Grass seed will be planted this week.

Kevin told the Post earlier this year that the pavilion would add endless possibilities of different uses in the park. “I can vision many family and community events here in the future. The pavilion, with its maintenance free design, handicap accessibility, and capacity to hold 10 picnic tables, should serve this community well,” he added.

Kevin can now start the final paperwork that needs to be submitted to the Boy Scouts for review before he can earn his rank of Eagle Scout. They will likely have his ceremony in the spring at the Pavilion.
