Peckham Park Pavilion

The pavilion at Peckham Park is a prize feature of the Middlefield landscape, and is the heart of the park. The pavilion's original inspiration came from the Middlefield Lions Club as a common space to accommodate the outdoor social and athletic needs of our community. It is a common space used throughout the year for all sorts of events. It offers a cool shady respite to sit and relax, a vantage point to view activities, have a picnic, or to shelter one from the unexpected elements.
The concept for the pavilion was introduced in 1996, plans were drawn and the arduous process of raising funds ensued. The Lions began construction in 1997, and continued for several years with the help of so many volunteers, including donations and labor from many local businesses.

The final product was a magnificent achievement. A New England style "Post and Beam" pavilion including a covered open space, a full kitchen, storage, bathrooms and septic system.  
A successful engraved brick drive was also held in 2003 to offset some of the cost of funding the project, and to extend a brick apron around the entire pavilion.

The pavilion was named after Dom Ferretti, a life member of the Middlefield Lions, in honor of his citizenship and commitment to community service and to Middlefield. The pavilion was completed and officially dedicated with a ceremony and music that lasted far into the night on June 6, 2003, kicking off the Old Homes Day weekend.

2019 Brick Drive

In 2019, Middlefield Park and Recreation completed a makeover for the pavilion. The pavilion got a new roof and resetting of the entire brick apron. In addition, The Middlefield Lions Club funded the construction of a new walkway with a new brick drive which provided the community the opportunity to memorialize family members, veterans, civic leaders, volunteers, sports programs. The new walkway connected the parking lot to the pavilion, making it truly handicap accessible and relocated the bricks recognizing the individual Eagle Scouts of Troop 33 (which the Middlefield Lions Club is the charter organization for) to the walkway.
