Members of the public should not come to the Beach House if experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or under a quarantine or isolation order. Public spaces will provide instructions for safe distancing, but the public’s support in being mindful of COVID-19 best practices, including frequently washing hands and using hand sanitizer, is appreciated. 

It’s Happening! The courtyard and splashpad are open daily beginning June 15, 9am-5pm. 
This past year’s budget was scaled back as a result of COVID, and this summer, we’re excited to bring back some of our programming, even if it’s in a limited capacity.

What’s up with the pool and canopies?
We anticipate that the pool and reservable canopies will return July 1 as proposed in the City of Santa Monica’s FY 2021-2023 Proposed Biennial Budget.
