Community Facilities and Rentals

The Parks and Community Services Department currently operates several facilities that are used for recreational programs, classes, and civic purposes.  In addition, during hot summer days, the lobbies of these facilities are available for use as an informal cooling center.  Beat the heat by enjoying the air-conditioned facilities, which are open to the public, free of charge.  Many of the City's facilities are available for rent by the community when not being used for City-sponsored programs or services. These facilities include:

Dublin Senior Center


The award-winning Dublin Senior Center opened in August 2005 and has become one of Dublin's premier event facilities. The building incorporates the use of warm, earth-tone colors and natural stone.

Shannon Community Center


The Shannon Community Center has become a premier rental facility in the region. The cornerstone of this new mission-style building is Ambrose Hall, which is a 6,000-square-foot event room that comfortably seats 300 for dining.

Ambrose Hall has floor-to-ceiling windows the length of the room that look out over a colonnade to the lush landscape and beauty of the creek. The abundance of natural wood trim, large wood cellar doors, and a travertine wainscot provide Ambrose Hall with the elegance of a grand hotel or winery.

Heritage Park & Museums

The Heritage Park and Museums is home to many of the City's museums and historical sites. When not being used for recreational and cultural programs, classes, and civic purposes, two of these historical facilities are available for rental: Old St. Raymond Church and the Sunday School Barn.
  • Old St. Raymond Church was built by Dublin pioneers in 1859 and is the oldest wooden church in California. No longer functioning as a religious institution, the little church stands in its original setting, its bell proudly pealing over the community. The intimate, historical setting is ideal for small weddings, baptisms, recitals, funerals, memorials, and lectures.
  • Sunday School Barn includes a large open room and a stage with a built-in lighting and sound system.
For more information, please call 925-556-4500.
