Tahoe Island Park
As you’re driving on Hwy 89 towards Camp Richardson, you’ll notice a small neighborhood tucked back on the right side of the road. This is the Tahoe Island Park neighborhood. Consisting of approximately 400 homes, this is a quaint neighborhood made up of homes built between the 60’s and 70’s with a few newer construction homes as well.
Country Club Estates
While this neighborhood does not encompass a country club, its close proximity to both Lake Tahoe Golf Course and Paradise Golf Course gives it the namesake. Street names reflect well know golf courses like “Pebble Beach” and “Apple Hill.” Elks Club Drive used to be the site of the original Elks Club which was torn down awhile ago. Many locals use this space as the starting point for kayaking and floating down the Upper Truckee River, which meanders through meadows and forests until it spills out into Tahoe Keys marsh and Lake Tahoe.
Bijou 1 and 2
Bijou 1 makes up the majority of the area while Bijou 2 is found within a “pocket” near the west side of Highway 50 (turn off Rufus Allen Blvd) and Johnson Blvd. Bijou municipal golf course is located in the middle of this neighborhood offering some spectacular views from back yards and decks. From the golf course one can travel down Johnson Ave to Al Tahoe and find the newly renovated Bijou Park with amenities including a skate park, basket ball courts, play ground, Dog Park, roller derby course, BMX track, disc golf course and picnic area.
