Freight Building at Depot Park

At the turn of the previous century, the Freight Building at Depot Park was a bustling place of transportation activity. In it's hey day, many visitors from the nearby Bay Area would flock to Santa Cruz and exit from this station. Now, the Freight Building serves as an excellent space for classes and special events.

Located down the street from the Community Center, the Freight Building features hardwood floors and an abundance of natural light.
