Stevens Pavilion Picnic Shelter
The iconic Stevens Pavilion is perhaps the most recognizable structure in the park. It’s appropriate for a variety of uses like family or company picnics, but the triangular A-frame with its big open timbers makes it especially popular for Portland weddings. Book early for the high season!
An open wooden platform located in our stately grove of redwoods and sequoias, the Redwood Deck is another popular location for wedding shoots, intimate weddings, and other small gatherings. It’s often rented in conjunction with the Wedding Meadow for the natural contrast of open green and deep forest views.
The open, rolling green of the Wedding Meadow, set among the trees and partially shaded by an immense Douglas-fir, offers the secluded feel of a deep forest glade. This spot is often rented in conjunction with the Redwood Deck.
Bill deWeese Classroom
The Bill deWeese Classroom, located in the Visitor Center, is available for weekend rentals. This is an ideal wedding add-on to be used as a dressing room space for wedding parties.
