Manzanita Lake

Manzanita Lake

Manzanita Lake was formed when Orr irrigation ditch (south of the lake) was dammed on Nov. 25, 1911. Today, swans, ducks, and even some turtles like to call it home. Manzanita Bowl, to the south of Orr ditch, is a land-fill that was brought in for the dam. Students have many activities, like karaoke, volleyball and Duck Day in Manzanita Bowl whenever the weather permits. The walkway separating the bowl and the lake was originally a carved wooden structure which was converted to a concrete walkway in 1937. Beyond Manzanita Lake lies Virginia Street, Reno's main street running through the heart of downtown Reno.
