This four-plus-acre park is located on the
Lake in downtown Tahoe City. Commons Beach is popular
for sunbathing, swimming and picnicking. Group picnic sites
and children's playgrounds are located within a large lakefront
grass and sand area.
Located in the heart of Tahoe City, Commons Beach has served many purposes for the community
from a transportation hub with shipping and train tracks,
to private commercial enterprises, to a local post office,
jail, firehouse, and finally a community park.
The park boasts a group barbeque area that can accomodate up to 75 people and adjacent to that is an amphitheater that will seat another 65. Each of these areas are available for private rental as well as several other outdoor venues maintained by the Tahoe City PUD listed on this page.
