Nut Tree continues to grow and change

VACAVILLE - Work to renovate Nut Tree Village's Market Pavilion and Bocce Grove into the Eats & Sweets Court and the Village Grove will begin this weekend.
The goal is to make both areas customer-friendly and generate more activity around Nut Tree's cluster of casual dining restaurants, said Sean Whiskeman of Westrust, the leasing and marketing group for Nut Tree Village.
Work to remove four of the Nut Tree's eight bocce courts to make way for a family-oriented park will begin Monday and is expected to take three weeks, Whiskeman said.
'We want to open out that beautiful grove of trees to be a more inviting place for families,' Whiskeman said. 'It will create a place where people can enjoy the shade.'
The fireplaces to be built in the park will be patterned after ones at the original Nut Tree. A playground will be constructed in June, and the lighting will be improved.
'It will be a great way to open this park to the public,' said Whiskeman, who added that the work will not affect parking for customers.
The work on what will be renamed the Village Grove coincides with the openings of new stores and restaurants in the nearby buildings.
