by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - The gazebo at the historic McLean House is just one of the venues available for your special events this year.

For those planning a special gathering in 2014, West Linn Parks and Recreation may have the perfect location for your meeting or special event.

From picnic shelters to a historical home and gardens, there are various options available throughout the city.

West Linn Adult Community Center

If you are looking for a larger facility or meeting space, West Linn Adult Community Center is a well maintained, single-story building that has multi-purpose rooms and a full kitchen.

It is available evenings and weekends for private rental and is located at 1180 Rosemont Road. To schedule a visit or for more information, contact facility coordinator Tiffany Carlson at 503-557-4704.

Sunset Fire Hall

This two-story facility has an open ballroom and kitchen space. Located at 2215 Long St., Sunset Fire Hall is a great option for anyone budget minded, and further reduced rates are available for nonprofit users. To reserve the Sunset Fire Hall contact West Linn Parks and Recreation directly at 503-557-4700.

McLean House

Located on a 2.5 acres park at 5350 River St., this restored 1927 home is something very special. The caretakers of the McLean House can assist you with scheduling at 503-655-4268, or visit the web site mcleanhouse.org.

Picnic shelters

Picnic reservations can be made beginning March 3 in-person or by phone at 503-557-4700. Reservable shelters are available at Willamette, Sunset, Hammerle, Mary S. Young, Marylhurst Heights and Tanner Creek parks.

Some of the classes beginning this week include:

Presented by the YMCA, kids ages 7 to 12 learn a hockey “skill of the day” and play group games that emphasis both teamwork and good sportsmanship. Begins Jan. 15 at Rosemont Ridge Middle School, 20001 Salamo Road.

Purchasing a home in Today’s Market — How to Prepare and Proceed, class No. 1500.201
