Carson City Encourages Residents to use Caution during Outdoor Recreation Activities
PLEASE REPORT SAFETY ISSUES AT PARKS OR TRAILS IN CARSON CITY: 775.887.2262
Due to the recent storms and flood events, several parks, trails and open spaces throughout Carson City have sustained more than $2,000,000 in damages. The City is actively working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State of Nevada Department of Public Safety and the Division of Emergency Management (DEM) to assess damaged areas and identify safety concerns. While some repairs are already underway, others may take up to six months depending on the complexity and scope of work required.
Carson City Parks, Recreation and Open Space encourages residents to use extreme caution when participating in outdoor recreation activities. With extremely saturated soils, erosion, and storm water run-off, many of the City’s parks and recreation facilities remain closed due to safety concerns and potential hazards. Please respect barricades, warning signs, and use these areas at your own risk.
The following parks and trails remain closed as of APRIL 7.
• Bailey Pond at Fuji Park –pedestrian access only
• Mexican Ditch Trail south of Silver Saddle Ranch
• Moffat open space trail between Lepire Drive and Hells Bells Road
• Long Ranch Park/Open Space trails near creek
• Sports Complexes (John D. Winters Centennial Park, Governor’s Field, Pete Livermore) Sports Complexes will be closed intermittently due to weather.
