To preserve historical and architecturally significant properties, promote social welfare, educate the public and protect the community and its landmarks in the beach area of Del Mar, California. To fulfill this Mission, the Friends of the Powerhouse raises funds to assist the City of Del Mar with ongoing preservation and enhancement of the Powerhouse Community Center, Beach Safety Center/Lifeguard Tower and adjoining public recreational areas.

Quintessentially Del Mar

The Friends of the Powerhouse started small and dreamed big. We are proud of our accomplishments ... preserving iconic structures, creating and renovating community facilities, and partnering with the venerable Del Mar Lifeguards to provide ADA and safety equipment to ensure that the Del Mar beach and park areas can be enjoyed by all. We invite you to learn more about our history, current projects and events.
