Rec Center: McCune Gym and Pendleton Foundation Room

Give us a call for help planning your special event. Think about the Recreation Center when organizing that next famly reunion or corporate party. We can set up a sports challenge in the gymnasium, like dodgeball or basketball, and then the party can move downstairs to the Foundation Room for food and beverages. Lots of fun for everyone!

Rent the gymnasium for sports practice, birthday parties, or other events. In addition to the gym floor, we have a loft full of games to keep any party fun. Add a bouncy house (small additional charge), and bring some CDs or your MP3 to really amp up the party.

Youth birthday parties are scheduled on Saturdays with four time blocks to choose from: 10:15 to 12:30, 12:45 to 3:00 pm, and 3:15 to 5:30 pm and 5:45 to 8:00 pm. For teen parties, please plan to provide one adult chaperone for every 15 guests. Activities available include ping pong, foosball, pool, or glow-in-the-dark dodgeball.

How Do I Make A Reservation?

Call the the Parks Office at 541-276-8100 to check availability, or to make an appointment to see the facility. Please remember that our first responsibility is to provide recreation programs for our community. Consequently, department programs will take priority over the schedule. Unfortunately, noise from gymnasium activities is not conducive to use of the Foundation Room.

Once an available date has been determined, complete the application and submit it with the deposits to the Parks and Cemetery office, 865 Tutuilla Road. Sorry but neither deposits or fees can be accepted at the Recreation Center. The Parks office hours are Mon. thru Fri., 7am to 4pm, and their phone is 541-276-8100.

See bottom of the Vert facility page for our policy on alcohol.

IMPORTANT - your date is not confirmed until your depost is received. The rental fee is due 14 business days prior to your date of use. Feel free to call us a 541-276-8100 to double check your arrangements the week of the event. We want your occasion to be special!
