Originally known as the Bath House and Recreation Pavilion, the Regner Park Beach House was designed by architect A. C. Runzler. The H-shaped building and park were dedicated at a four-day celebration starting on Independence Day, July 4, 1935, during the City’s Golden Jubilee—West Bend’s 50th anniversary. The facility primarily served as a summer space for pond swimmers to change and shower as well as a warming house for skaters in the winter months.
At over 85 years old, the Regner Park Beach House is not only a cherished piece of West Bend’s history, but it also serves many functions for the beach pond, splashpad and ice rink. The City of West Bend envisions creating a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility, equipped with a welcoming lobby, full kitchen and concession stand, individual and family changing rooms, new restrooms, and an outdoor pavilion and courtyard. The Beach House will also be available as a rental facility for private celebrations and gatherings. It’s time for the beach house to be as beautiful and inviting as Regner Park.
