Bear Creek Stables

Nestled within the Mid-Peninsula’s 1,432-acre Bear Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve, this 26-acre equestrian complex is renovating its historic public stables and grounds to accommodate 62 boarded horses as well as 10 public livery horses for riding lessons, equestrian education, and trailrides.  First phase improvements include maintenance and repairs necessary for continued equestrian access to the open space preserve.

The long-term renovation plans include replacement of a caretaker residence; restoration, stabilization, and adaptive reuse of the original 1919 barn; a new hay barn and storage; siting and improvements of paddocks, corrals, arenas and horse trailer staging; new public restrooms; parking and connections to the extensive Preserve trail system; improvements to roads and driveways; regrading for erosion control, accessibility, drainage, and habitat restoration. Utility and infrastructure improvements include; new septic system, water system, drainage controls, site lighting and site electrical.  JNRA is the prime consultant, overseeing a multi-disciplinary team of architects, engineers, equine designers, and restoration specialists.
