Open House and Dog Parks Discussion
at the Historic Wungnema House
Sunday, September 24, 2017

The Foundation for Carson City Parks & Recreation (FCCPR), is hosting an Open House at the Wungnema House located in Mills Park, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017. Besides being a chance to learn about this historic building, this will also be an opportunity to discuss and review possible improvements to dog park areas in Fuji Park and Sonoma Park with FCCPR officers. Carson City Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (Parks Dept.) staff have prepared a list, with preliminary cost estimates, for improvements to dog areas at Fuji and Sonoma Parks. Possible improvements include benches, sod areas, doggie drinking fountains, and canopy trees. FCCPR is exploring ways to assist the Parks Dept. with funding some of these improvements.

Please note that dogs, aside from registered service animals, are not allowed in Wungnema House or Mills Park.

FCCPR maintains the Wungnema House under a lease agreement with the city. The house was built in 1948 by a family of Hopi stonemasons, the Wungnemas, and served as their home until the early 1970s. Notable, in addition to the house's exterior masonry, is the inclusion of the family's clan symbol in the rock fireplace. The Wungnema's distinctive masonry survives in many homes and other structures in Carson City, but is also found in homes, churches, ranches, and other structures at Lake Tahoe, Washoe Valley, and Reno. Access to the house is from the Seely Loop, the east entrance for Mills Park, off North Saliman Road in Carson City, Nevada.

FCCPR is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The mission of FCCPR is to provide an umbrella under which various organizations and citizens can come together to explore innovative ways to promote and facilitate their activities. It assists organizations with similar goals to promote and meet Foundation objectives by acting in a fiduciary capacity to help manage and protect monies raised by members for their various stated projects.

FCCPR welcomes new members and is interested in individuals who can assist with fundraising, newsletter, publicity, special events, recruitment, and park clean up. Basic annual membership is $25.00, and higher categories of membership are encouraged. For further information, call David Bugli at 775-883-4154 or visit the website http://CarsonCityParks.org.

FCCPR Welcome to our site. The Foundation is an umbrella organization created for charitable and educational purposes related to Carson City Parks and Recreation. We assist the Carson City (Nevada) Parks & Recreation Dept. with projects for improvements to the City's parks. Currently we are providing financial guidance and assistance to several non-501(c)(3) organizations that are raising funds to make improvements:

  • Ladies Gun Club - Raising funds to make gate and restroom improvements at the gun range near Flint St.
  • Disc Golf Group - This group is raising funds to create three 9-hole disc golf (frisbee golf) courses in the Flint St. area.
  • Headstone Project - This group is raising funds to erect headstones on graves in Lone Mountain Cemetery over graves that are missing headstones.
  • Tennis Club Project - This group is raising funds to maintain tennis facilities in Carson City Parks, particularly Centennial Park.

We are looking for other projects where we can be of assistance. If interested, contact David Bugli (Dcbugli@aol.com).

This website is in development. The links should be working in a few days. We are also setting up a Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/CCParksFoundation.
