Community Meeting Scheduled to Discuss New Shade Structure at Museum of Archaeology

The El Paso Museum of Archaeology is hosting a community meeting at 6 p.m. onMonday, August 22, to discuss the construction of a new shade structure at the City’s Wilderness Park, 4301 Transmountain (the museum of Archaeology is located at the City’s Wilderness Park).

The new shade structure, constructed with quality of life funds, will replace the gazebo that was once on the property. Severe weather over the years damaged the gazebo and it was removed after inspectors determined it was unsafe.

The new shade structure will be constructed as part of an ongoing partnership between the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department and the Museum and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD). MCAD manages and maintains the building and Parks and Recreation manages and maintains the grounds at the City’s Wilderness Park.

In the past year, the museum has developed community partnerships to repair and improve the grounds around the facility to enhance visitor experience. Community volunteers have repaired the trail system that was also severely damaged during flooding in the area. Until this project was completed last winter, the trail system around the museum was closed to the public.

For more information on the community meeting, call Erin Ritter at (915) 212-1768 or email ritteree@elpasotexas.gov
