MacArthur Park is a 100-year old Julia Morgan-designed building, with 2018 marking its centennial. This landmark has served the community in many incarnations: as a 1918 Hostess House for visiting families of World War I servicemen, as a community center, a veterans hall and now, once again, as the new MacArthur Park Restaurant. Today’s MacArthur Park has been reclaimed by its original owner and its original chef with a revitalized menu and a recent renovation.
Keeping History Above Water: West will take advantage of the venue’s many rooms throughout the day, including its stunning back patio, from group discussion and break out sessions. The workshop will feature a catered lunch from the Diner’s Choice award winning MacArthur Park Restaurant, which has been a neighborhood favorite in Palo Alto since it first opened in 1981. Additionally, an optional evening event is the CA Preservation Foundation’s 2018 Conference Opening Reception with catered dinner and complimentary drinks. Tickets are available here.
