Community Services


The Community Services Department oversees numerous functions of the city including Lifeguard services, parking and beach enforcement, and all facility use and film permits for the parks, beach area, Powerhouse Community Center, and the Civic Center.

Community Organizations

The Department works closely with community organizations such as the Del Mar Foundation, the Friends of the Powerhouse, the Cultural Arts Committee, and Community Connections to name a few. Community programs are possible by working closely with staff. These events include the Summer Concert series, the Cultural Arts First Thursday events, Children’s Movie Night, and many others.
