Upgrades to the Pony Barn, located on the corner of Steeplechase Drive and Triple Crown Road, are expected to be complete by October 1.
A renovation plan — scaled back from initial proposals due to budgetary constraints — was approved earlier this year. Upgrades to the structure, which has not had major upgrades since it was converted from a horse stable into a picnic pavilion in the 1980s, include minor structural repairs, new security lighting in the pavilion, new security lighting, and a new tot lot play area.
ADA-friendly upgrades are also proposed, including an asphalt parkway and parking lot, water fountain, outdoor grill and bathroom enclosure.
The Pony Barn is one of seven picnic pavilions owned by RA. Currently, work is underway on converting the wood chip flooring into concrete flooring. The renovation project began in early July.
