Whether you’re hosting an all-day conference with a lunch break or need a place to have a quick team meeting, Canyon Commons can do it all. The 30,000-square-foot facility, opened in the fall of 2016, features large windows overlooking Hess Creek Canyon, known for its local flora and peaceful walking trails. Inside, wooden-beam construction and expansive skylights designed to emulate the pattern of light shining through tree branches pay homage to and fully utilize the facility’s scenic surroundings.

Construction was done so the building would fit seamlessly into its surroundings while disturbing as little of the site’s natural beauty as possible. The entire space seats nearly 900 and includes a main dining area, smaller meeting spaces, and a cafe. Our in-house catering located inside Canyon Commons is perfectly convenient for your banquets, meetings, summer camp meals, and more.
