Recreation and Parks

Parks and Facilities

In 1968 the North Tahoe Public Utility District Board of Directors created the Parks Department to oversee the development of the former sewer ponds into the North Tahoe Regional Park. Over the years, many facilities have been developed in the Park either by volunteers, District employees or State or Local grants. Since then, the District has also acquired and begun redevelopment of the Tahoe Vista Recreation Area, a public beach and boat launch facility, at the intersection of Highway 28 and National Avenue in Tahoe Vista. In addition to maintaining Parks and Facilities owned by the District, the North Tahoe Public Utility District also manages and maintains the public beaches in our District that are owned by Placer County.

Visit our Parks website for detailed information on the various facilities and recreation opportunities available within the North Tahoe Public Utility District.

North Tahoe Event Center

The North Tahoe Event Center is owned and operated by the North Tahoe Public Utility District. This lakefront facility in the heart of Kings Beach offers wedding, meeting, conference, and event space for up to 400 guests. In addition, the Event Center also hosts many local events and fundraisers.

Call to Artists

The NTPUD is looking for artists for the 2016 calendar year.  Artist exhibitions are needed to fill the lobby of the North Tahoe Event Center where they will be on display for purchase.  Local and regional artists are welcome to apply.  Two-dimensional work only.

Applicants are required to email 5 digital images of artwork similar to what they would like to display at the NTEC and complete the application.  Displays will rotate every four months.  Wall space is divided into 7-8 potential displays for artists with varying widths.
