Facilities Rental


Lagoon Pavilion

The Lagoon Pavilion(formerly known as the beach house) is an open-air pavilion with a kitchen, grill, and bathrooms located next to a saltwater pond, and is an ideal setting for socializing. The Beach House is generally available on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure availability for a special function, please make a reservation. Bring your own grill supplies. The Beach House is not cleaned by our cleaning staff, so please be sure to clean up after and take out the trash.
