No Camping, however; The pond is surrounded by a large, well-maintained lawn with lots of
room for kids to play. It also has tennis and volleyball courts and picnic areas. It's a great
place for kids to fish since there are few trees in which to tangle lines.
Advice and Tips
Fishing is best in the mornings and evenings when water temps are cooler. Also, the more
recently it was stocked, the better the fishing will be. The pond is expected to be weedy
by late summer, making for difficult fishing.
FROM RENO Travel south 1 mile past Bower's Mansion on old 395. Turn east on William Brent Drive and
you will see the park to your left shortly after turning.
