The Station 51 original relocation project included site work for a 20,000 square foot public safety center including roadway improvements to Fairway Drive, parking, new utilities and utility relocations, and a storm water collection and treatment system. The Lakeside Trail is the final one-mile segment in the largest paved trail system at Lake Tahoe connecting the existing multi-purpose trails through a highly constrained urban core of Tahoe City, along the lake shore.
The"64 Acres" site was once a trailer park that the U.S. Forest Service wanted to return to a more natural setting. Our job was to design and oversee construction of a new recreational facility that would not only be functional but beautiful. The site also had to be designed with flood and erosion control in mind to protect the scenic and environmental quality of the adjacent Truckee River.

The project included a complete refurbishment of the park area. This involved upgrading the playground to meet current safety standards; relocation of the restroom building to a more accessible location; reconstructing the sewer pump station and force main; highway streetscape improvements including removal of existing boardwalk and railing, installation of a depressed walkway surfaced with concrete pavers and cable railing. Beach improvements included placement of 12,000 cubic feet of imported sand in former grassed areas. Shoreline stabilization was necessary to protect the beach, and a dynamic rock revetment was designed to mimic natural conditions. Other work included restoration and stabilization of the steep slopes and existing foot trail, providing ADA access to restrooms, interpretive displays of Tahoe history, a picnic terrace area and overlook areas, and a reconstructed parking area with advanced stormwater BMP’s due to proximity to Lake Tahoe.
