Lakeshore Pavillon

A pavilion under construction at Lake Pine Bluff will be the new home of a farmers' market currently located in the adjacent downtown area of Pine Bluff, Ark. The Pavilion at the Landings is taking shape on a pier that juts out into the lake. It is part of a new development expected to stimulate activity in the downtown area and bring jobs to southeast Arkansas.

The project was initiated with a $100,000 gift to the city from Simmons First National Bank in honor of the bank's 100th anniversary. A combination of public and private funds is being used to complete the project. Last fall, Pine Bluff received a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to attract economic development to the area. The state, county and two private foundations have also pledged financial and in-kind support totaling more than $350,000.

The total cost of the project is estimated at about $2 million.

The 10,800-square-foot pavilion will include community rooms and stadium-style seating to accommodate arts and nature activities and festivals.

Phase I is scheduled to be completed by January, 2006. Plans for additional phases include a walking trail, a bike trail and a bridge to connect the lakefront area to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff campus
