Work continues on the rehabilitation of five pavilions at Renziehausen Park in McKeesport.

The general contractor for four of the pavilions is Plavchak Construction Co. of Jefferson Hills. The work includes new roofs, signage, benches and other updates to pavilions 1, 2, 3 and 7 at a cost of $184,750.

Funding is being provided through a special allocation from the Allegheny Regional Asset District, which is supported by Allegheny County's 1 percent sales tax.

A fifth pavilion is scheduled to be renovated with the help of the McKeesport Lions Club.

Tom Maglicco, city administrator, said the improvement in the appearance of the pavilions has been dramatic.
