About Grier Pavilion
Providing panoramic views of downtown Riverside and beyond, the Grier Pavilion is a community gathering place situated on the Riverside City Hall rooftop, located in the historic Mission Inn district. The pavilion pays tribute to the heroes of the civil rights movement, with quotes from leaders like Cesar Chavez, Chief Joseph, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Rosa Parks, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and Ahn Chang-Ho as part of the decor.
It also honors Riverside’s most distinguished citizens, including the Grier family and others, whose stories can be accessed via touchpad kiosks. The Grier Pavilion is energy-friendly, with photovoltaic cells providing shade and solar power to City Hall.
