Park Shelter

-A A +A
1908. Northeast corner of Oak and 8th streets, Chautauqua Park

The segmented circular roof together with the central clerestory and its roof seem to float delicately over the landscape, for the thin steel columns supporting the roof (which is 160 feet in diameter) are almost invisible from a distance. The pavilion was built for gatherings of the Red Oak Chautauqua Association.
