Yorath House will be closed for bookings until further notice due to maintenance requirements.
Yorath House, one of the City's newest rental facilities, can be found in Buena Vista Park, adjacent to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park and the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
As part of the Buena Vista/Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park Master Plan, redevelopment of this historical residence, believed to be one of the few remaining homes located on the river flats, provides a truly unique facility for corporate retreats, weddings, community programs and family-friendly events in the river valley.
Built in 1949, the two-storey family home was occupied by the Yorath family until 1992, when it was sold to the City. The redeveloped house includes a main floor event space, a second floor multi-purpose space with a large terrace, a second-floor meeting room with small terrace and a large outdoor event space. This four-season facility is now open for public bookings.
