About Us

The Brazilian Room derives its name from its rich hardwood paneling. These walls were once part of the Golden Gate International Exposition's 'World's Fair' famed Brazilian Pavilion, displayed on Treasure Island in 1939.

When the exposition ended, the paneling was presented to the East Bay Regional Park District by the country of Brazil as a gift of friendship. The paneling was transported to Tilden Regional Park, to be housed by a new permanent exterior built by the Works Progress Administration, combining local rock and timber with the beautiful walls, floors and fixtures from Brazil.
