Book your Event or Meeting at the Mission Trails Visitor Center

A stunning venue for special events, the 14,000-square-foot Mission Trails Regional Park (MTRP) Visitor and Interpretive Center is in the heart of the park, conveniently situated just 10 miles from downtown San Diego. All facility rentals benefit the park through the nonprofit Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation.

Award-winning architectural design and a panoramic view of Mission Gorge, the park’s peaks, and the serpentine path of trees along the San Diego River makes the Visitor and Interpretive Center a unique venue for private events such as weddings, parties, and landmark celebrations, as well as gatherings for businesses and nonprofits.

Indoor space for after-hours rentals includes an expansive lobby, 94-seat theater, stunning library, and two floors of exhibit space. Suitable for events ranging from special private dinners to large weddings, the venue includes an outdoor amphitheater which provides a gorgeous backdrop for the exchange of wedding vows. The 4,000-square-foot terrace overlooking Mission Gorge can accommodate large, seated dinners, receptions, and special presentations.

After-hours facility rentals are available between 5-11PM. Seated events can accommodate as many as 180 guests, while informal gatherings can number up to 300 people.

In addition to after-hours facility rentals, three meeting rooms are available for daytime rentals between 9AM and 5PM. While the maximum capacity for each room is 20 people, these rooms can be combined to accommodate groups of up to 60. The meeting space includes a screen and AV capabilities, and doors that can be opened out to the terrace and a full view of Mission Gorge.
