Completed Parks Projects:

North Tahoe Regional Park Multi-Use Trailhead Improvements

This project includes the restoration of the upper parking lot into the development and construction of a multi-use regional trailhead that will receive the North Tahoe Trail being developed and constructed by Placer County. This project will also develop and construct paved ADA, multi-use access paths to Tahoe TreeTop Adventure Park, tennis courts, and the Tahoe Unleashed dog park.  Approximately 62 parking spaces in the upper parking lot will be striped including 3 handicap spaces; installation of site amenities include bike repair stations, bike locker, and racks, and a bike wash station; and installation of permanent BMPs for parking lot drainage.  These projects are funded by grants and funding from Placer County and a partnership with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District.
This project will also construct the gazebo by the tennis courts that was destroyed during Winter 2017. 
This project also includes relocation of the basketball hoop. 

New Restrooms in the North Tahoe Regional Park

Thanks to a grant from Placer County, two new restroom buildings were installed in the North Tahoe Regional Park in late 2016 and early 2017. 

"Tahoe Unleashed" Dog Park 

The Dog Park itself was completed in 2016 thanks to the hard work of Dog Day in the Park, a non-profit that spearheaded the fundraising.  The groundbreaking for the project took place on September 7, 2014, and the project was completed in phases over the next two years as fundraising goals were completed. 

The final pieces of the project will be completed in Summer 2019 with the construction of the ADA pathway and installation of the dog water fountain.  Thanks to nonprofit organization Dog Day in the Park for spearheading the fundraising efforts to bring this fun asset for our community.
