REDMOND, OR -- The Juniper Golf Course, already a popular Redmond venue, could be getting a new addition - an events pavilion.
Annie McVay, Redmond Parks Director, says leadership wanted to reevaluate Juniper and see how it's meeting the community's needs, when the idea of adding a larger events venue to the property came up. "There is a restaurant out there now that handles a lot of events, but it is kind of small, so the idea of having a larger event pavilion where we could do larger weddings and other events like that might be sort of a catalytic change for Juniper Golf Course."
Tuesday night, the Redmond City Council decided to study the cost and impact of the proposed pavilion over the next year or so, do targeted market research, and determine demand. "We want to understand what our events pavilion would look like, howmuch it would cost, and then also, would it get the use that we think it will get. It's really an exciting idea and Juniper Golf Course is a beautiful setting for an events center."
City Council will revisit the idea after the market research phase is completed. If approved, the events pavilion would enter design phase and funding.
