About the Facility

Opened to the public in 1936, the Beach House was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to house changing rooms on the ground floor for Lake Temescal visitors and office space (in what is now the event space) on the upper floor that served as the original headquarters for the park district.

Open Houses and Scheduling Tours

We have our open houses at the Brazilian Room every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 3pm-7pm. During these hours we will have staff on site who can give tours of the facility and provide information on the facility and rental process.

To make an appointment for a tour outside of the open house dates at the Brazilian Room or to schedule a tour of the Temescal Beach House, Fern Cottage, or Shoreline Center with a staff member, please call our office at 510-544-3164, or send us a message to brazil@ebparks.org
