    In October 2018, Carson City became the 76th Bee City USA affiliate in the nation, and the first in the state – setting an example for the rest of Nevada to choose to promote pollinator populations too.

Ross Gold Park Pond Renovations

Post Date:07/07/2009


The Carson City Parks and Recreation Department is preparing for work to be done to install the infrastructure of an irrigation pumping system in the pond at Ross Gold Park. In order to facilitate this work, the pond must be drained and City crews are allowing the pond to evaporate and will then pump out any remaining water.

The pond is temporarily fenced and the public is being asked to stay clear of the pond to ensure everyone’s safety. During this project all waterfowl have been safely relocated and are being cared for. The public can be assured the ducks and geese will return once the work is completed and the pond is filled back up again.

For further information, call Scott Fahrenbruch, Director of Operations, at 887-2262, Extension 30340.
