“We plan to be open year round, offering cold beverages and snacks to guests in the summer while they play games outdoors and hot chocolate and coffee to guests in the winter, skating on the pond,” said co-owner Deen Haleem.
Co-owner Carol Mitchell spoke of the process of getting to opening day, saying, “We are grateful to PM Construction for turning this project from concept to reality so quickly and we are especially thankful to the Friends of Deering Oaks Park for their enthusiasm and support.”
Parking includes curbside spots throughout the park as well as a lot located directly behind the Cafe, accessible from State Street.
