After the wedding lottery, PP&R will begin taking general wedding reservations for the 2020 season on Thursday, January 2, 2020. If you have questions about this process, please contact the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525.


Portland Parks & Recreation is the proud steward of more than 200 parks, gardens, and natural settings that can be reserved for weddings and/or receptions. These lovely settings are the perfect locations for ceremonies and celebrations. A few things to know:

  • While weddings may be scheduled at a picnic site, receptions cannot be scheduled in a wedding garden (only the ceremony portion).
  • City code requires that a permit be obtained for any wedding in a public park where guests are invited. Permits are issued by the Portland Parks & Recreation Customer Service Center. 
  • Weddings are not permitted at the Japanese Garden, Pittock Mansion and surrounding acres, or Portland International Raceway.
  • Check the wedding brochure for locations, fees, policies, insurance, and reservation information.
