Quarry Ponds cooking up success
Specialty center features unique businesses and events and relaxing atmosphere
BY SUSAN BELKNAP
GRANITE BAY VIEW EDITOR

Several years ago Lisa Pow-
ers had a vision.
The part-time Granite Bay
resident wanted to create a
specialty center in Granite Bay.
The location was on Douglas
Boulevard across the way from
Bushnell’s Nursery.
Although it took eight years
for her vision to pass through
all the processes and proce-
dures necessary for any proj-
ect to go through, her vision
became reality a few years ago
when the Quarry Ponds Cen-
ter opened in December 2006.
“The grand opening was
May 2007 and then in August
of that same year, the reces-
sion hit,” Powers said.
But recession or not, Powers
and Quarry Ponds are weath-
ering the storm.
“We’ve been doing so many
things, just by being creative,”
she said.
Indeed, the weekly list of
activities and performance
schedules for the center listed
on the Quarry Ponds Web site
is impressive.
