Welcome, Friends!

Friends of the Powerhouse is a group of dedicated volunteers who raise funds through personal asks and creative community events to assist the City of Del Mar with ongoing preservation and enhancement of the Powerhouse Community Center, Beach Safety Center/Lifeguard Tower, Tot Lot, and adjoining public recreational areas.


Tot Lot Renovation

Originally built it the ’90s, the Tot Lot is a barefoot-and kid-friendly “park within a park” boasting swings, slides and climbing equipment nestled within the scenic Powerhouse Community Park. Due to deterioration and new code requirements, there was a need to rebuild and we’ve just completed the newly renovated tot lot.

Our Tot Lot’s Grand Opening was a BIG success. This dream wouldn’t have come true without our amazing donors and community. It is heartwarming to see so many kids enjoy the new playground. Thank you all for your patience and support. See you at the park!
