At the Grounds
Placer County Fairgrounds
After over 80 years of hosting a wide range of community events, the Placer County Fairgrounds was due for a facelift and facility upgrade. Working closely with the new facility operators, the County, and surrounding neighborhoods, we designed a specific plan for the 60+ acre site. This phased plan includes a new boulevard intersection, major renovations of existing buildings, public gathering spaces, and a brand new 190,000 sq. ft. event center. The grounds and plazas were organized in a manner that they can function together for large events or be used for various smaller gatherings simultaneously.
