Park and River Landing Event Space

Rental Options

Picture perfect weddings, lively team building events and festive summer festivals are just some of the events that take place at our outdoor sites. Park and River Landing event space is available free of charge for event use; however, events do not have exclusive use of the space. Events, especially smaller occasions, often end up sharing event space with the general public.

There are also many scenic venues available to book at River Landing including an amphitheatre, belvederes and a fire vessel (there is a charge to book the fire vessel). You may not fence off park space or River Landing in a manner that blocks access to the Meewasin Valley Authority (MVA) trail or that prohibits access through the site.
