Concrete Floor Being Replaced at Kiwanis Park Pavilion


The Taylorville Kiwanis Club’s Kiwanis Park Pavilion is getting a new floor to replace the original concrete floor poured in 1995.


The original floor was broken up and torn out earlier this month.  It’ll be replaced by a new concrete floor.  The work is being done by local contractor Kevin Hamell.


Half the cost of the $14,000 project is being paid for by the Taylorville Kiwanis Club Foundation.  The other half was raised locally during the club’s concrete project campaign earlier this year.


Kiwanis Park was founded in cooperation with the City of Taylorville, in 1995.  A pavilion was constructed by the club that year, then over the years, playground equipment, a firepit, restrooms, a smaller pavilion, and a concrete pad for another yet-to-be-built small pavilion, have all been added.


The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.  For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
