Description: 

Bijou Community Park, essentially the demarcation between Hwy 50 and Pioneer Trail, is an excellent place to get out in the fresh air, walk around, and make use of the variety of interactive facilities. Located at 1099 Al Tahoe Blvd., Bijou Community offers generous forest, dog-park enclosures, playgrounds, picnicking facilities, South Shore's only skatepark, and one of the best beginner/intermediate frisbee golf courses on the West Coast. This park has not a little, but a lot of everything, so bring the kids, skateboards/bikes, and some discs to fully utilize all this park has to offer.

Everyone seems to be drawn to Bijou Community Park because of the wide range of activities on-tap. Lots of teens at the Skateparks, kids on the playground/climbing walls, and adults of all kinds at the dog enclosures and frisbee golf course. Widely accessible imn the middle of town, Bijou attracts families, single people and tourists.

Last year, I spent the entire Autumn (when not in the classroom) working on my Spanish language while doing circuits on the frisbee golf course. Speaking of the course, it has a full twenty-seven holes of varying length and difficulty. All clearly marked and established, the baskets are changed on a regular basis to give the course a much needed injection of diversity. Because of the course's renown and accesibility, semi-professional/amateur tournaments are held multiple times a year, drawing devoted locals as well as die-hards from out of the Basin to compete and participate in this passion-driven sport.

The Tahoe Police are very keen on enforcing the dog-leash policies that exist in town, rendering the dog-parks in Bijou Community an important venue for those of us who want to see our furry-friends out and about, burning all that puppy energy. An important note--if you do let your dof off leash deeper in the park, be careful; many packs of coyotes live in the expansive meadow backing the park and are well known for their troublemaking antics.
