The Cabrillo Pavilion, a gift to the people of Santa Barbara from David Gray in 1927, has served as a community destination for beach recreation, social events, summer camps and sporting events for more than 90 years. Construction of the Cabrillo Pavilion provided the cornerstone for the City's plan to acquire and develop land along East Beach (from Steams Wharf to the Andree Clark Bird Refuge) for public recreation and park purposes. When it opened, the building provided public facilities to support beach activities and ocean swimming, as well as social events, such as dances, tea socials, and private parties. Community use of the building over time mirrors the growth and development of Santa Barbara as a premier seaside destination and hub for beach and aquatic sports, its contributions to supporting the war effort during World War II, and the dedication of civic leaders to prioritize community coastal access over commercial development.
