Development of the park began as early as 1922, when Reverend Dr. Charles Holmes Scott developed the land for the Methodist Church as a West Coast center for the Chautauqua movement. In 1943, the Presbyterian Synod purchased the property for private retreats. The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy purchased the property in 1994 to preserve the park as a public space. Temescal Gateway Park is managed by the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, a local government and public entity established in 1985. The MRCA provides ranger services, fire prevention, scientific expertise and educational and youth leadership programs.
