ICON Shelters was able to produce the custom shelter envisioned by the landscape architect for this quaint neighborhood park.

Project overview and highlights.

Faced with a unique opportunity to develop a new park in an established area, the city of Kirkwood relied on Planning Design Studio of St. Louis, Missouri to deliver a design for Monfort Park. This neighborhood park features the stone clad pavilion, an age inclusive playground, benches, and a drinking fountain; all of which are located among carefully preserved mature trees.

The planning and design improvements to the Kirkwood Parks system received a design award from the Saint Louis Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

The landscape architects utilized the ICON Craftsman style shelter as a design basis for the pavilion. Stone was saved from the existing home on the property that was donated to the city to be a park. The stone was used to clad the columns and the integrated bench seat. A pagoda-style flair was added to the roof which is constructed with a Douglas fir tongue and groove base and shingle finish.
