“Fantastic place to celebrate a wedding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We just had our daughters wedding here (Steampunk theme), and we couldn't have found a better place anywhere! The setting is a group of Victorian era homes centered around a delightful fountain. With everyone dressed in Victorian top hats and period costumes, it looked like the set of a movie. The weather was fantastic and the ceremony was outside on the stage with the fountain behind. The reception was in one of the houses. This was a perfect location and Barbara who we booked the venue with was charming and a delight to deal with.

“Cute, very small, only worth as a stop for locals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

This is not a place to see if you are in NorCal for vacations. It's just a small complex of 20 or so well preserved victorian houses. It's a small oasis inside the city but it's really nothing as a tourist attraction. It can be seen in ten minutes.

“Organized a Meeting in their space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2002

Preservation Park is a beautiful setting for a meeting. There were 45 attendees for our meeting which was held in Nile Hall. The grounds are pretty - it's a Victorian era block of buildings that were moved to the site and arranged just so with nice landscaping and a central fountain. The meeting coordinator at Pres. Park, Barbara, was fabulous to work with, as well.
