Commons Beach is the community beach area and park for Tahoe City. A large grass space, public bathrooms, a children's outdoor jungle gym and swings as well as a paved bike path that leads to Meeks Bay and Squaw Valley make up the park portion of Commons Beach. Beyond the grass is a large sandy beach that frames Lake Tahoe. This is an excellent swimming area for kids as the water is shallow for quite a ways. To make it a day event, there are a dozen picnic tables that sit on the edge of the water as well as by the children's play zone. This is also the stage for the weekly summer event series, Concerts at Commons Beach, that gets people dancing on Sunday afternoons as well as the Wednesday night Movies On The Beach. For groups, there is a large rentable barbecue area ready for up to 75 people.
