FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Mayor Tom Henry, along with Parks and Recreation and community leaders, celebrated the completion of Franklin School Park Wednesday morning. 

The $1.8 million project was designed by architect, Alec Johnson. The renovated Franklin School garage was designed by Steve Schuhmacher. The garage is now the David Hefner Pavilion. The Hefner family donated $300,000 to the renovation.

Organizers were also excited to announce there will be a police presence at the park. 

"We couldn't have done something like this without their help, but it's really a real model for community involvement," said Al Moll of Parks and Recreation. 

Reservations to rent the new pavilion will begin December 18th.
