From January 2019 through May 2019 employees of the Public Properties Maintenance division spent many of their working hours renovating The Chalet at Freedlander Park. Countless hours have been devoted to updating the kitchen, restrooms and the event space itself. Some behind the scenes updates include a new HVAC system, electrical upgrades, new lighting, plumbing, and windows.
The Kitchen includes:
2 - Warming Ovens

The women's restroom is now equipped with an adjacent Mothers/Bride Room, and the men's restroom has been given a facelift.

Seating for up to 190 individuals with round and rectangular tables and chairs are included with any rental.
