Along with a new roof, Filotto also installed 16 skylights to better illuminate the shelter.

Update (April 1, 2016) – Public Works crews have been working at the picnic shelter over the past few weeks to prepare for the plumber to come in and replace the existing fixtures in the restrooms. Work has included removing the existing partitions, hand dryers, changing tables, and mirrors. Upon completion of the fixture replacement, Public Works crews will begin installing new hand dryers, mirrors, and partitions, in addition to painting the walls and concrete floor. Public Works crews have also been working to tuck point the brick chimney on the north side of the shelter in an effort to rehabilitate the existing stone.
