C.W. Post Courtyard Construction
Hillwood is embarking on a major visitor enhancement to the campus for the first time in over ten years! Beginning June 9, the C.W. Post Courtyard (just outside the Café) will be transformed from an asphalt parking area into a beautiful public space for dining and programmatic activities.
The finished courtyard will feature a new hardscape of bluestone and brick that complements existing pathways and buildings. This graceful and flexible new space will be tented seasonally for at least six months each year, extending outdoor use of the Café and providing space for special activities such as workshops and programs associated with our family festivals. This beautiful framed tent will also have built-in capacity for special lighting and audio-visual elements for lectures, parties and programs.
Construction will be completed no later than October 5th, in time for the fall influx of visitors. Food service will be available throughout the construction, so please continue to use it when you visit Hillwood during the summer. Please bear with us as we proceed through this relatively short construction phase. It will lead to a fine new amenity for all of our visitors to Hillwood.
