Due to the high bacteria count at Burnt Mill Beach, we have been asked to close access to the swimming area at that location.

This is not uncommon after dry periods followed by heavy rain as we have recently experienced.

Additional water testing took place on Sunday and we should get the new results on Thursday. We are hoping the bacteria levels are within proper levels so we can re-open by this weekend.  Meanwhile, the swimming area remains closed.  We invite you to enjoy Tavern Bay Beach Club which is open with no swimming restrictions

We will update you as soon as the test results have been received.

Grass Valley Park Improvement Survey

Three months ago, a group of ALA member volunteers formed the ALA Grass Valley Park Ad Hoc Committee to identify improvement ideas and develop a conceptual master plan for rejuvenating Grass Valley Park. On Saturday, July 24th those ideas were shown to members during a Meet & Greet gathering at the park to collect feedback from ALA members who were able to attend. The Committee would now like to expand the collection of member feedback on the improvement ideas by conducting a very short survey of all ALA members. The survey will be conducted online for approximately one week. You are invited to participate in the survey by clicking the link below. A conceptual design of the improvement ideas is also posted below for your review.

Thank you for your feedback on potential improvements ideas for Grass Valley Park.

The law is being phased in over several years. Operators 40 years of age or younger are required to carry the California Boater Card by January 1, 2021.
