A new pavilion in Frontier Park is expected to open in January.
Chris Atkinson, assistant director of St. Charles Parks and Recreation, said the path leading to the pavilion on the north end of the park has been completed along with the steel frame for the pavilion.
Next week, crews are expected to begin work on the roof.
Reservations are already being accepted for the pavilion, and others throughout the city. Reservations are available at all city shelters from April 15 to Oct. 31 and at Blanchette Park between Nov. 1 and April 15.
The fee to reserve a shelter is $45 for a St. Charles resident and $90 for nonresidents.
On Wednesday, St. Charles Parks and Recreation Commission approved a new policy that prohibits people from selling items out of the pavilions.
The largest impact this will have will be on major events like the Oktoberfest event and the Festival of the Little Hills, said Maralee Britton, Director of Parks and Recreation.
