“Placer County is looking forward to a new online reservation system set to launch this fall,” said Andy Fisher, parks administrator. “For our visitors who want to reserve a sports field, memorial hall, camp site, or picnic pavilion, the new system will streamline the process, help us manage popular facilities like Hidden Falls Regional Park, and allow greater tracking for security purposes. ”
Other changes include making the prohibition on possessing or discharging weapons in any public recreation area managed by the county consistent with other county code sections and the California Penal Code. Another change will exempt service dogs from leash requirements if a leash would interfere with the animal's work or if the owner's disability prevents the use of a leash. Any off-leash service dog still must be under the owner’s control, whether through voice, signal or other methods.
Parks staff will return to the board this summer for direction on any needed changes on fees, schedules and fines.
Placer County is also in the midst of developing its first-ever master plan for parks and trails. Visit the plan website to learn more, sign up for updates and offer input by taking a survey. Master Plan
