“A Modernist Wonder”

In 1970, The Lions Club constructed this pavilion with its striking hyperbolic-shaped roof. They financed its construction, in part, by holding pancake breakfasts and selling brooms. Designed by the same concrete engineer responsible for the turtle-shaped Reams grocery store that once stood on 200 West, the pavilion was constructed by pouring concrete into forms on the ground and then elevating them using hydraulic jacks.

This plaque is located in Lions Park at 1280 North 950 West in Provo, Utah
