Prison Hill Recreation Area Planning Open House

The Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department will be hosting an open house to discuss planning efforts for the 2,500-acre Prison Hill Recreation Area and adjacent properties. The open house will be held in the Bonanza Room in the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St., on Thursday, January 9, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 

 Recently, the department gathered public feedback through an online survey to consider appropriate land uses and examine existing trailheads. In particular, the survey focused on land use for a City-owned property on the west side of Prison Hill near Koontz Lane and the water tank.  Feedback from the community will guide future improvements, prioritize expenditures, and will be used as a means to seek grants and donations for the implementation of various site improvements.  The open house is an opportunity for recreationists and residents to learn more about the Prison Hill Recreation Area, review survey results, and discuss ideas with City staff.

 For additional information please contact Gregg Berggren, Trails Coordinator at or 775-887-2262, ext. 7219.
