Bower Ponds pavilion

An Arrow Arc welder secures concrete slabs as another is flown in by crane to be placed by an Eagle Builders crew for the new Bower Ponds pavilion Thursday. The $300,000 structure replaces its 25-year-old wooden predecessor in the same location. Other work to improve the city’s recreation gem includes a $150,000 serenity garden complete last year and a $700,000 playground, the city’s biggest, to be done later this year.
