The slabs for the dugouts at the baseball field are complete and we are ready to build! The ball field is slowly coming along and we cannot wait for all to enjoy it for many years to come. We are still adding play equipment to the parks and awaiting news of the Prop 68 grant.

The CSD is currently working on the Per Capita Grant in hopes of adding play equipment to the parks and aerating Horsethief Lake.

The gazebo by the lake will be rebuilt in the next few weeks. We wanted to let the community know and give everyone a chance to go take some family pictures if you wish. This sweet gazebo has been here for many years and the goal is to have the new one look as close to this nostalgic piece as it can. We have an amazing Eagle Scout taking this project on.

Stallion Springs Board of Directors

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m., normally in the CSD Boardroom or at the Community Center, subject to COVID restrictions. The next meeting is scheduled for December 14. However, be sure to check the sign board at the entrance as the meeting may be canceled or moved due to it being close to Christmas.
