Where Everyone Belongs


Year-round, enjoy a varied schedule of cultural programs, classes, docent tours of the Marion Davies Guest House, art exhibits and recreational amenities. The site is fully accessible, including a pool lift and beach wheelchair.

During summer, explore amenities and programs including summer inspired classes, the pool, Monday Fun Day and Rec Room with ping-pong and games. Annual events include the Community Picnic and Cardboard Yacht Regatta. Reservations are offered - though not required - for the pool, parking, canopies and beach courts.
