Mill Creek Park seeks food, beverage vendor for Wick Warming House

Mill Creek Metroparks has big plans for building that once served as a place for ice skaters to warm up and sip from a mug of hot cocoa.

The park board this week announced that it is looking for vendors to serve food and beverages at the Wick Recreation Area, including what is still known by many as the Warming House.

The park is in the process of renovating the building to include space for varied public and private use.

The Wick Snack Hut will be inside the Warming House, catering to food and beverage needs of recreational leagues and those attending the Morley Concert Series.

The food operation will serve several children’s playground areas including a wet playground, Par-3 golf course, tennis courts, volleyball courts, baseball fields, softball fields, Dek hockey and a small banquet/party room.

The Wick Warming House Renovations are expected to be completed in 2023.

Completed proposals are to be submitted by November 30, 2022.
