The Ojo Pavilion

When the pavilion was first built, it was created as a utilitarian space. Over the years, as more and more people have visited the land for various reasons, the pavilion has assumed other roles, including that of meeting place, shady nook for reading, socializing venue etc. It still very much functions as the central cooking, cleaning, and shower area, but Glenna and Dave realize the value it brings in enhancing the experiences of those who spend time on the Ojo lands.

This structure and its immediate surroundings continue to evolve to positively reflect the various ways that people interact here, not just with each other, but with the functional aspects as well. Privacy fences and other features have come to fruition largely due to observation of how people choose to interact here. This process is ongoing.

NEW IN 2019!: The pavilion has a new kitchen! We realized that when there were twenty or so people in the pavilion, space was very limited. There were also other issues with our existing sink set-up and shortage of couterspace. Dave decided in 2018 that a new kitchen would be a great and valuable addition and construction began in April of 2019. This addition has allowed more food storage, easier cooking and clean up, and opened up plenty of more room in the main pavilion for dining and hanging out.

In addition, a new covered entry area was created. We have always asked that the pavilion be a shoe free zone. This was always hard to do, especially when it was raining. This covered portico now allows folks to be out of the rain while removing shoes and thus makes it a lot easier for people to keep the pavilion mud and dirt free.
