This nearly century-old dance hall is Lincoln Parks and Recreation’s premier reservation facility for large events. Boasting the largest indoor seating of 225 people in the Lincoln Parks system, the Auld Pavilion has been a gorgeous facility that countless groups have enjoyed using throughout its existence.

Reserving the Auld Pavilion:

If you choose to rent the Auld Pavilion, there will be a Parks Department employee available during your entire rental for any questions or needs. The staff person will arrive to open the building at the time indicated on your Shelter Reservation Application. The building should be clean and ready to be locked by the end time on your application. The refundable damage deposit is returned to you once our staff has confirmed the building was properly cleaned, it was only used during the hours stated on the reservation form and no alcohol beverages were consumed.
