Hello folks! We’ve got some exciting news to share with y’all: We currently manage rentals at Risley Landing Gardens! This historic garden is located on a rise above the Willamette River off of River Road, roughly half-way between Milwaukie and Oregon City. Historically this site was a dock (hence the “landing” name), used when the river was the primary form of transportation. This 1.12 acre (0.45 hectare) site was owned by the Risley family for over 100 years. In 1983 the family donated it to the Oak Grove Garden Club, who have owned and managed the property ever since.
Nestled under a canopy of Douglas-fir and Oregon White Oak (the “oak” in Oak Grove), this scenic conservatory is a great spot for an intimate wedding, get together, or photo shoot. Garden weddings have taken place here for decades. The garden can accommodate events up to 100 people. The parts of thee property that can be used for events is a terrace with a view of the Willamette, a grassy area above the terrace, and a gazebo that seat 35. There is a small parking lot that can be used for food trucks–a wedding last fall was catered by KOi Fusion!
