People who are curious about the new park shelter in Millstream Park will get a chance to tour it at a grand opening at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27.

The St. Joseph Lions Club will present a $40,000 donation to the City of St. Joseph at the event.

Matt Killam, who is a member of the St. Joseph City Council and the St. Joseph Lions’ Club, said construction on the shelter began June 12 and and final inspections and a certificate of occupancy was issued in October.

The total project cost is $534,351.

“I am very happy to see the building completed,” Killam said. “It will be a great spot for events and makes Millstream Park a shining star in St. Joseph’s park system.”

Millstream Park, a 35-acre park, is located on the northwestern edge of the city limits and includes a wooded walking trail along the Watab River and a dog park.

The shelter, which is available for year-round use, can be rented for $107.38/day and a required refundable damage deposit of $200/day.

For additional information, contact the city offices at 320-363-7201.
