Bear Creek Country Club – All Eyes on the Prize

BCRPD opens newly acquired Bear Creek Country Club for KBCZ 90.1 Radio fundraiser

By Julie Horner

The first opportunity for the public to enjoy the reopening of Bear Creek Country Club, a recent acquisition by the Boulder Creek Recreation and Parks District, is on Saturday, April 22 for the KBCZ Time Machine Dance Party: 1960s Edition radio station fundraiser, hosted by KBCZ 90.1 FM Boulder Creek Community Radio. The evening includes an all-1960s soundtrack featuring live DJs, a silent auction, beer, and wine. BCRPD’s new Bear Creek Facility, perfectly preserved in full 1960s splendor, is indeed, a time capsule itself.

The 1.2-million-dollar purchase, completed in November of 2016, came with a swimming pool, tennis courts, clubhouse, workout room, hot tub, sauna, four acres of park land, BBQ pits, creek access, basketball court, and interior social areas with soaring ceilings and sophisticated retro decor. To restore, renovate, and upgrade existing structures to meet public building access requirements – and help pay back the loan to the Santa Cruz Land Trust, which was instrumental in completing the sale – the District has launched a crowdfunding campaign with a goal to gather $600,000 over the next two years.
