Outdoor Recreation & Parks

El Dorado County is one of the most diverse, exciting and beautiful places you’ll ever experience. Nestled in the foothills, the area provides an incredibly affordable vacation for anyone who enjoys nature, outdoor sports or gold panning. There is a tremendous amount of diversity in the local flora and fauna.

The El Dorado County Parks Dept. provides the public with open space and recreational amenities to facilitate family interaction, accommodate community functions and provide opportunities for positive use of leisure time. The Parks Dept. has been able to develop two regional park facilities and is beginning construction on a regional trail that will ultimately connect communities along the Highway 50 corridor.
