PLAN YOUR VISIT

Beach House Update as of 9.18
We miss our Beach House community and hope you and your loved ones are well. In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting budget crisis, the Beach House summer is different than in years past. While everyone is staying safe, we're bringing the Beach House to you with #BeachHouseBliss, #GoldCoastMoments, and virtual Beach=Culture programs  follow us on Instagram or Facebook!

A number of City facilities will begin to reopen with restrictions on a rolling basis. City staff are making facility improvements to ensure a safe reopen for the community. We are also working to make necessary changes to programming due to modified operating hours, staff reductions, social distancing, and infection control guidance. For City of Santa Monica information as it becomes available, please check santamonica.gov/coronavirus-reopenings. Re-opening is subject to change based on the County of Los Angeles Public Health orders and guidelines.

A notable change at the Beach House includes the pool closure through June 2021, and the Splash Pad and Playground closures until further notice. We are as heartbroken as you may be about these extended closures, and we
'll be back as a restorative place with refreshed recreational and cultural programs as swiftly as possible. Stay tuned and stay well!
