When a backyard isn’t big enough for your get-together, consider gathering at South Fayette Township’s new pavilion in Fairview Park.
The community pavilion, which opened for rentals in June 2014, is the township’s largest shelter and offers the most amenities.
The pavilion accommodates about 200 people and provides built-in restrooms, a food serving area with electricity, aluminum picnic tables and access to fields, trails, sports courts and green vistas in the 125-acre park.
About 90 percent of the construction was completed in-house by the township’s public works crew.
The three-year project was made possible by township funds and a generous donation from the Rotary Club of Bridgeville-South Fayette.
Businesses and individuals are welcome to inquire about naming rights to the new pavilion.
The pavilion’s daily rental fee for South Fayette residents is $200 on weekdays (Monday through Friday), or $300 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Nonresidents pay $350 on weekdays, or $450 on weekends and holidays.
A separate $250 check for a security deposit also is required of all renters.
Alcohol permits are available at a cost of $15 for residents or $25 for nonresidents.
Directions to Fairview Park: From Route 50/Washington Pike, turn onto Boyce Road. Turn left onto Lawnshadow Drive and right onto Greenwood. The park entrance is on the right, before the bend. The new pavilion is located at the back of the park, near the multipurpose fields.
