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 the time has come to completely rebuild the tot lot. As we work in partnership with the city, these improvements will ensure the safety and enjoyment of this area for years to come.
