The LaSalle Park Pavilion was built way back in the spring of 1917 by the City of Hamilton. The unique outdoor pavilion was designed in an era when community entertainment was at its peak, the likes of which has seldom been seen since. It was the place to be and holds special memories for many people. A devastating fire in May of 1995 destroyed the wood-framed second floor of the building leaving only the shell of the pavilion standing. In 1997 the cherished historic site was rebuilt to its original 19th-century architectural form, reviving the community landmark for the enjoyment of generations to come.

Nature All Around

One thing that makes the LaSalle Banquet Center stand out, is the park surrounding the venue. The site is right on the edge of the waterfront and features a boardwalk trail through the forest. This space makes for great couple portraits and bridal party photos. This is all to say there is plenty of amazing space to use as a backdrop for your once-a-lifetime photos!
