Major Projects Underway!

A whole new scene at the top of the peninsula is taking shape...

Standing where the old bath house stood, looking towards the now-empty tennis area.

At this point everything above the Middler Cabins is history! The entire top of the peninsula has been scraped clean.

The old tennnis courts have been, ummm, a touch out of date for a while now and the old bath house was - well, old.

From a demolition point of view, we always knew that it wouldn’t make much sense to try to replace just some of what was up there.

So all 3 courts, the bath house, the fencing, cement walls, etc… are gone.

After all of it was removed the crew then actually scraped down about 3 feet of earth to give the whole area a somewhat bigger footprint to build on.

So….. what will you see up there come Summer 2017?

A view from the end of where the "Lego court" used to be, looking back towards the Dining Hall.

Well, first there will be 2 brand new tennis courts, side by side about where the 2 most used ones were.

Then there will be a basketball court in the area where the “Lego court” used to be.

And lastly the bath house will be replaced by a new, larger, more modern one very similar to the one added to Senior Hill a few years ago.

Then of course new fencing, walkways, etc… will go in at the end.

We’ll post photos in the spring once there are courts and buildings to show.

Be sure to come see them this summer!
