Welcome to the grand unveiling of our BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW AMPHITHEATER!
After months of chiseling, chainsawing, laughing, crying (from laughter…mostly), and hammering, the new Crooked River Amphitheater is now complete! Shiny and offering spectacular scenery, the new area will provide comfortable rustic benches (think no more hot buns on the hot stadium bleachers), views of Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood and the rest of the Cove Palisades vista, and a giant woodsy screen to view the coolest of movies.
I know you have been combing your inbox, pacing and waiting for the latest juciest Cove post from the Rattler to appear in your email. Thank you, so much, for waiting patiently while our writers were elbows deep in this project! Now that it is complete, we are already to blog again…hurray!
There is also a BONUS campfire area for roasting marshmallows during our Star Spangle S’mores Memorial Day celebration along with spacing that is ADA accessible. The concrete pad was textured to have a natural, earthy blend with the desert. Basically, in a nutshell, this new amphitheater is like a posh Street of Dreams house meets juniper country. We can’t wait for you to come enjoy it!
Though the journey to build this amphitheater was never easy, the outcome was well worth the adventure. Read on for the gripping, fanciful construction story of our own (small-scale) Flavian Colosseum.

The End. Or should we say, The Beginning! Of many awesome amphitheater interpretive presentations to come!
The Cove staff had their 1st Annual Hotdogs for the Holidays cookout today at our brand spanking new amphitheater! Stay tuned for a post on the Amphitheater project (it took nearly a month) and the brand new, cool and woodsy benches we installed. We were proud of our new place to roast marshmallows, so we had a celebration! We hope you get the chance to cozy up around the fire this holiday as well.
