Grand Opening May 26, 2016!
Come join the Hastings Rotary and City of Hastings on May 26, 2016 for a grand opening of the Rotary Pavilion and the surrounding Levee Park on the RiverWalk. From 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. there will a dedication ceremony followed by live music performances and other entertainment. Thanks to over 180 individuals, small businesses, corporations and philanthropic organizations from Hastings and the surrounding area, we were able to build this beautiful facility that will encourage all community members to connect and share for years to come!
The Rotary Pavilion will host a variety of activities such as musical and theatrical performances, arts & craft shows, farmers markets, Rivertown Days events, outdoor worship services, youth activities and many others. All of which we believe will add a renewed sense of vibrancy to Hastings.
The River Place’s design was developed by local architect David L. Harris, who has generously donated all of his work in this project. Click here for a video describing the location, and check out this short video retrospective showing the importance of the River Place Pavilion to our community.
The City of Hastings donated all of the land and provided surrounding landscaping, amphitheater seating and bathroom facilities, and will maintain the building in years to come – a total value of over $1 Million. The Mayor and City Council have been strongly supportive of this effort and have made it a centerpiece for the ‘Riverfront Renaissance’ along the river, which include significant improvements to the Levy Park area such as the veteran’s memorial, ice rink with warming fireplace, musical park, and others.
