The Washington Park Pavilion was built around 1900 as an elegant cobble stone event lodge complete with a grand ballroom, kitchen and dinning room. Originally, there was an oval balcony upstairs that overlooked the ballroom complete with finished wood railings and beautiful wood floors. The two story pavilion has an open, oversized portico with a scenic view of a duck pond.

It's home to pre-school in the park during the day and serves as a banquet hall/ rental center at night. A drop-ceiling has been installed in the overlook of the balcony to provide florescent lighting for pre-school children and visiting patrons. New French doors were installed in 2008 which once again provides immediate and convenient access to the oversized portico.


Washington Park Pavilion does not host open to the public lobby hours.  This facility is open by rental or program only.
