About

Preservation Park is a wedding venue that can be found in Oakland, California. This facility features 16 houses that have been thoughtfully restored to recreate an authentic Victorian neighborhood. Details such as period park benches, old-fashioned street lamps, a Parisian bronze fountain, wrought-iron fences, and more further add to the charming, historic atmosphere.

Facilities and Capacity

To-be-weds holding their special day here will have a wide range of event spaces at their disposal. Say “I do” in front of your loved ones outdoors at the Pavilion, which offers an elegant bandstand and is nestled in the midst of beautiful landscaping and vintage architecture. Later, you and your guests can head to the nearby Fountain Circle for dining and dancing the night away. This area is a circular plaza that also boasts a majestic two-tiered fountain featuring a sculpture of the Roman goddess Diana. The outdoor options can accommodate up to 300 seated guests or 500 standing. You may alternatively opt for an indoor reception, in one of two adjacent houses. The Ginn House, built in approximately 1890, offers an ambience not unlike one of an English country home. Its two airy parlours allow for plenty of natural light to shine through and boast art, drapes, and light fixtures, all in the Victorian style. The Ginn House also has a majestic staircase, perfect for photos or for making a grand entrance. This house is ideal for intimate gatherings, with room for up to 50 seated guests or 100 standing. Finally, Nile Hall, built around 1911, is a great option for larger groups, as it can host events for 150 seated guests or 200 standing. It includes soaring ceilings, sophisticated velvet drapes that go from the ceiling to the floor, skylights, a stage, and an extensive lighting-and-sound system. The space is decorated in soft colors and designed with intricate details that add an extra-special touch to any event. For the largest of celebrations, the two houses can easily be combined, as an interior hallway connects them.

Services Offered

Preservation Park offers an unforgettable setting for special events and wedding-related celebrations such as engagement parties, showers, ceremonies, and receptions. If you rent the venue’s outdoor spaces, the gates will be closed to outside traffic to amplify the nostalgic, town-like energy the property possesses. In addition to all-inclusive packages, the park can provide numerous services, including setup and cleanup, outside-vendor allowance, event rentals, and others.

Dreamy, unique, your instagram influencer friends will thank you

To say our wedding venue was spectacular seems like an understatement. Preservation Park was absolutely the venue that dreams are made of. The staff was like a well oiled machine from the very first contact over a year ago, and they had recommendations for our other vendors that made our wedding perfect, (Miraglia Catering and Event Magic). The park had all of the tables and chairs on site and the staff seamlessly moved them between our wedding ceremony to our reception around the fountain. We had a room on site to get ready in and to leave our things for the night, and the natural light at the park has made for some incredible photos. Listen… everyone has done the wine country, barnyard wedding with the burlap. Preservation Park is an incredibly unique place and they support local small businesses and nonprofits so do your yourself a favor and stop looking for a venue right now.

I photographed a wedding here and I can't get over this venue. It is so unique and gorgeous. In the middle of Oakland, it's super convenient for everyone. Yet it has such a cute and intimate feel. The buildings are beautiful and everyone had such a good time here

Beautiful Hidden Gem in Oakland!

Preservation Park is truly a hidden gem in the heart of Oakland. With towering palm trees, green grass, and historic Victorian homes, Preservation Park transports you and your guests to a different time and place! In addition to the beauty, Lawrence, the event director, is amazing! Planning a wedding during COVID times is no easy feat and Lawrence was patient, understanding, and accommodating. He championed the wishes of the couple and put their safety, comfort, and experience first! It was very easy to communicate with him throughout the rescheduling process and he was even there to greet us (socially distant and with a mask!) on the day of the elopement. As a planner, I highly recommend having your wedding at Preservation Park!
