Bertelsen Park Fire:

Due to the extensive damage sustained and the loss of power to the building, the water feature will remain closed for the 2021 season. Please visit our other water feature at Promontory Community Park located at 2700 Alexandra Drive, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762. A temporary restroom and hand wash station has been set up in the upper parking lot for park visitors to utilize during the building closure. A cause of the fire is under investigation.
