The Children's Pavilion at Highland Park Expected to Return

If all goes as planned, a historic three-story building that was torn down at Highland Park in 1963 will return in about three years.

The Children's Pavilion stood at the park's highest point from 1890 until it fell into disrepair. It was a popular spot for concerts and gatherings, and it offered great views of the area.

The new pavilion will be built on the same spot, and it could open in time for the 200th birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted -- the man who designed Highland Park and major parks in other U.S. cities.

About half of the $3 million needed to resurrect the building has already been raised.
