PORTLAND, ORE. – Riversedge Park is a popular Corps of Engineers recreation area on the banks of the Rogue River just downstream from William Jess Dam and Lost Creek Lake. The park’s pavilion can now be reserved for group events, including weddings and wedding receptions.

The pavilion area at Riversedge Park is available year-round for reservations with the exception of holiday-extended weekends such as Memorial Day, Labor Day and the Fourth of July.  All permits are free, but require at least a one month lead-time.  When not reserved, the pavilion is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

"We are very excited to offer this space as a wedding venue again. It's a beautiful spot and we now have a process in place to help balance the impact of large gatherings on other park users and the park itself," said David Hays, Chief of Natural Resources for the Corps’ Rogue River Basin Project.

Applications for a reservation or event permit may be obtained in person during business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mon-Fri, or by email at dll-cenwp-rogue-rangers@usace.army.mil.  The Project Office is located at 100 Cole M. Rivers Dr., about 30 miles from Medford, Ore., at the base of William L. Jess Dam.  For general park information, visit us at http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Locations/RogueRiver.aspx or contact park staff at
