Pavilion in the Trees annual maintenance

Located in West Fairmount Park

Martin Puryear’s Pavilion in the Trees is a public amenity gently perched in the canopy of a forest. Built entirely of wood, Pavilion in the Trees requires regular maintenance to prolong its life without disrupting its natural patina. For this project, the Conservancy partnered with the Association for Public Art to develop and implement a conservation program to address major deterioration. The Conservancy has continued this relationship and currently conducts annual inspection and maintenance of the amenity.
