Pickleball courts in the Squaw Valley Park used to consist of two courts established by local residents utilizing an overflow parking area. The past five years have seen an explosion in the popularity of the sport. AEC was retained by Placer County Parks Division to design new pickleball courts for an expanded facility. An analysis matrix was completed that ranked various features of three alternative sites and configurations. AEC designed three new courts that were constructed in 2016 at Squaw Valley Park.

The project replaces an existing 2,500 LF small diameter tank line from the Four Season water tank to the Tahoe Woods Subdivision with 12″ tank line to provide fire flows that comply with the California Fire Code. The new line also provided electrical service to the water tank to enable the TCPUD to remotely monitor the water level inside the tank. Special considerations in this project include close coordination with the USFS. The water tank and waterlines are on USFS land acquired through the Burton Santini Act. A USFS Special Use Permit, including specific resources documentation and analysis as well as proper legal privilege was needed from the USFS and the Tahoe Woods Subdivision.
