Nearing completion in Branch Park across the street from the Kerbey Lane Cafe, the event pavilion under construction will contain nearly 20,000 square feet and will serve a number of purposes including the home to the weekly Mueller Farmers’ Market. In addition, events such as corporate functions, craft shows, weddings, and private gatherings will be held there.
Central features include two sets of unisex restrooms with common wash stations, three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows for weather protection to highlight the park setting, and a convenient loading/unloading area for vendors or participants bringing tents, stages and other items to the facility.
The Branch Park central location was intended to make events more accessible to Mueller residents as well as visitors from other neighborhoods and to provide easy access and adequate parking in nearby parking garages. According to Brian Dolezal of Catellus, the farmers’ market is expected to move to the Branch Park Pavilion in the springtime, with other events to be announced.
