Crestmore Manor Receives Prestigious Award

In August 2020, Crestmore Manor was honored with a notable award for best 2020 Operational Facility from the National Association of County Park and Recreation Officials. Crestmore is a stately mansion with a rich history located in Jurupa Valley. It is home to RivCoParks Headquarters and sits adjacent to the picturesque Rancho Jurupa Regional Park.

This colonial-style mansion was designed by prominent local architect Herman Ruhnau and built in the mid 1950’s by W.W. “Tiny” Naylor, a restaurateur and horse rancher. Over the years the home has been the site of films like 1964 movie Straight Jacket with Joan Crawford. In 1973 the County of Riverside purchased the home and the surrounding areas along the Santa Ana River to be used for open space, habitat conservation, and park use.

In the 1990’s the site began to garner interest as a wedding venue due to the uniqueness of the property and the setting. Various improvements have been made over four decades including construction of a scenic pond with trees, a beautifully improved courtyard with an amazing gazebo, and additions of the Carriage House and Riverfront Rooms for events. This awe-inspiring site is perfect to host groups of 20-300 guests.

At this time, RivCoParks is allowing private tours by appointment for guests interested in having their event at Crestmore Manor. Although no events will be allowed until the public health status improves, weddings are currently being booked for 2021 and 2022. To book a tour or speak to a representative, call (951) 955- 4759 or e-mail: jadiaz@rivco.org For pricing information and wedding packages, visit the Crestmore webpage at www.RivCoParks.org/crestmore-manor
