Beach Chalet Building and murals in Golden Gate Park
1925 Spanish Revival-style building at the park’s western end includes striking WPA frescoes, mosaics, and wood carvings added in 1936-37
This 1925 Spanish Revival-style building at the park’s western end, designed by renowned architect Willis Polk, originally housed a lounge and bathing facilities for Ocean Beach swimmers on the ground floor and a restaurant upstairs. The ground floor’s striking WPA frescoes, mosaics, and wood carvings were added in 1936-37 in a project funded by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
Today, the ground floor houses the Golden Gate Park Visitor Center and the Park Chalet restaurant; upstairs is the Beach Chalet restaurant, with sweeping views of the Pacific.
