Sunrise Park presents a mix of architectural styles that evolved over time, from Atomic Ranch to late 60s mod. Developments with names like Enchanted Homes and Desert Palms Estates are centrally located near the civic center with the Albert Frey designed City Hall and Wexler’s iconic airport that opened the desert to a world of international travelers. Innovative and influential architects like Donald Wexler, Robert H. Ricciardi, Dan Palmer, William Krisel and Hugh Kaptur all designed homes here, while the Alexander Construction Company and Jack and Bernie Meiselman built them. Huell Howser, the host of PBS television’s long-running series California’s Gold lived in the neighborhood for many years, as well as hotel magnate Conrad Hilton. Architects William Cody and Hugh Kaptur designed landmarks throughout the Coachella Valley but chose Sunrise Park to build their family homes.

The tour highlights several homes in the Enchanted Homes tracts built by the Alexander Construction Company, a home built by famed architect Jack Meiselman, a home featured in Dwell magazine, and will also include vintage automobiles.

Proceeds from this tour will be used to support non-profit local agencies benefiting the Sunrise Park Neighborhood as well as operating costs for the Sunrise Park Neighborhood Organization.
