Bonanza Neighborhood Park officially opened with a ribbon cutting and grand-opening celebration Saturday.

The celebration include a free barbecue and activities for children.

“It’s clear our community is asking to have more neighborhood parks and to see all these kids and families enjoying Bonanza Park today is a true pleasure,” South Lake Tahoe Mayor Claire Fortier stated in a press release.

Fortier also spoke at the grand-opening event, which was attended by more than 60 people, including officials and residents, according to a press release from Edgewood Companies.

The site of the park was formerly the site of C&M Lodge, but Edgewood Companies took on the project as part of a condition of a TAU transfer that allowed them to build a lodge at its golf course. Bonanza Park includes a children’s play area, grass play area, picnic pods, basketball court, and a horseshoe toss. It will also feature an environmentally friendly design including solar lighting, recycling containers, low flow irrigation and a native demonstration landscape planting material.

Partners involved with making the park happen include The Bonanza Street Neighbors, City of South Lake Tahoe Council Members, City of South Lake Tahoe Staff, TRPA, Tahoe Outdoor Living, The Garden Shop, ESA Engineering, RO Anderson, Design Workshop, Cornerstone Monuments, Carson Valley Signs, Buell Recreation, Woodburn & Wedge, Clean Tahoe Program, Dinner Table Project, Wise Consulting, Michael Rohrer Construction, Tahoe Choice Real Estate, Tahoe Paving Stones, Gary Jones Paving, Mark S. Cutright, JE Construction, Winters Electric, GS Concepts, El Dorado County, Charrette Participants and St. Theresa’s students, the release stated.
