Lions Lake Habitat Restoration Update

Habitat restoration update: Lions Lake is still closed to the public, but the wildlife are thriving (lots of goslings) and we’re adding water to the lake. We can’t wait to “unveil” the pond in a few weeks. A huge thank you to Nevada County Resource Conservation District for making this project happen and for restoring the lake for our community.

Summer Hours at the Fairgrounds

Effective immediately, the Nevada County Fairgrounds will return to its summer hours, which means that the Fairgrounds inner grounds and gates will be open during the week and on the weekends from 8 am to 4:30 pm. The inner grounds and gates will be open during the week and weekends to walkers and bicyclists, but all must be off the grounds when the gates lock at 4:30 pm. The summer hours only apply to the inner grounds and gate closures; it does not affect the Fairgrounds Administration Office, the RV Park at the Fairgrounds, or any events that are taking place on the grounds during the summer months or on the weekends. Happy walking and cycling!
