Mather Point Amphitheater

An amphitheater to enjoy breathtaking views.

Grand Canyon Mather Point Landmark Dedication

Grand Canyon Conservancy donors funded the construction of a new rim-side amphitheatre for ranger programs. Located at one of the most beautiful viewpoints along the south rim, the amphitheater was built using native limestone and provides seating for visitors to enjoy breathtaking views of the Colorado River, Zoroaster Temple, and Bright Angel Canyon. It’s an ideal spot for ranger-led interpretive programs or just relaxing and soaking in the canyon view.

Donors also funded a beautiful medallion honoring the many tribes who call Grand Canyon home. The medallion is carved into the stone walkway that leads to the rim and Mather Point. A large circular shape, the medallion contains the name and symbols that represent each tribe and was designed with input from tribal members. 

Both projects were part of an extensive improvement project at Grand Canyon National Park’s visitors center plaza. In addition to Mather Point, the South Entrance Road was realigned, a bus transit center was built, and additional parking for private and commercial vehicles was added. The area was made vehicle-free to enhance opportunities to view the canyon.  

Location: Mather Point Amphitheater is located northeast of the Visitor Center on the South Rim.
