“Very Friendly and Good Coffee”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

The pavilion houses Black Bear Crossing coffee shop. The staff is always friendly and the coffee is hot. The shop offers decent, simple food and baked goods. The Sunday breakfast is good and decently priced. Black Bear is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and read the newspaper or a good book, although its very busy in the summer. Outside and on the lower level you can rent paddle boats or canoes to use on the lake. In the summer there a numerous musicals and concerts at the outdoor stage. Always well done and a fun place to sit and watch a show. Plus, they are all free. Take a walk around the lake while you're there.

“Go back in time”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The pavillion is a great place to visit in the summer. It's right on the lake, and has wonderful walking paths surrounding it. The pavillion has a wide variety of treats. Have an ice cream cone from the restaurant section, and sit out on the pavillion, admiring the view. Their concerts are always great.

“great view”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

the scenery around the pavilion is very nice considering it is located in a urban area. Some years back I attended a event there it was a very enchanting atmosphere. Great choice for wedding receptions, etc.
