Tahoe City Commons Beach
Commons Beach is a great spot for the entire family. 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.
The park boasts a group barbecue area that can accommodate up to 75 people and an amphitheater that will seat another 65. Each of these areas and other outdoor venues are available to rent through the Tahoe City Public Utility District.
In the summer, Commons Beach is the home of FREE Concerts at Commons every Sunday afternoon and FREE Movies on the Beach every Wednesday night. A great family spot.
