A group of Alta Sierra residents have proposed an off leash dog park as well as a playground where people and dogs may play.

The proposed site location is at the corner of Dog Bar Rd and Alta Sierra Dr. currently where the Alan Thiesen Trail parking is located.

"Well known and loved by locals around Alta Sierra, this trail loops through a small nature preserve on a hill with a park-like forest, small meadows, and some nice views. It’s worth a trip to discover and enjoy." The organizations website said.

The Group is currently conduction a survey and would like your input. Click here to take the survey.

The Bear Yuba Land Trust, Rotary Club of Nevada County South, ASPOA, Bear River Parks and Recreation, and Supervisor Ed Scofield were initially contacted to garner support for the project. Various levels of support have been pledged:

  • BYLT will provide general oversight and coordination with various stakeholders. They will develop an overall plan for the Alan Thiesen/Adam Ryan Preserve/Mathis Pond conservation and public access areas.
  • The Rotary Club of Nevada County South will spearhead the playground portion of the project. This includes raising funds and labor from a club of 34 members.
  • ASPOA has committed to provide communication with the surrounding property owners as well as ongoing maintenance of the park.
  • Bear River Parks & Rec has offered to provide financial and park-related support.
  • Supervisor Scofield has offered to coordinate with the county’s planning department for permits.
As a Alta Sierra resident I'm in support.
