Pendleton parks offer shelter rentals for special events, whether you are planning a picnic with your neighbors, a birthday party, or a wedding. For weddings in a park, we recommend you rent the park shelter to help ensure privacy. You can also reserve tennis courts,horseshoe pits, and ball fields, along with shelters located at the Aquatic Center.

Park shelters can be used without a reservation, but paid reservations take precedence so if it absolutely must be available for your event you'll want to contact Parks at 541-276-8100 or stop by 865 Tutuilla Road, Pendleton and make a reservation. We also have a convenient online reservation system for park shelters.
