About Us

We often hear that one of the best attributes of the Riechmann Pavilion and many of our Parks and Recreation venues is that we don't offer many services. We don't cook, we don't make floral arrangements, and we don't set your tables for you. What this means for you is freedom and flexibility! Book a caterer or have your Uncle Steve barbeque out back. Bring ornate floral arrangements or bring a haul from the Farmer's Market. Rent linens or roll out the burlap. Hire a bartender or tap the keg yourself. You don't have to pay us to do these things for you and you don't even have to choose from a list of approved vendors. Do what you want!

We are a great venue for Weddings, Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, and Brunches.


The facility rental includes the use of our tables and chairs including 

150 chairs

12- 5ft by 30 inch black tables

12- 5ft diameter round black tables

11- 5ft by 18 inch black tables

We also have a small podium with microphone and built in speaker and a large pop-up projection screen that you are welcome to use with your own projector. 

The facility includes the large main room with vaulted ceiling (max capacity 150), a full kitchen with refridgerator and warming oven, mens and women's restrooms, both with ADA stalls.
