Fallbrook Rancho Viejo

This pond or "Lake" as they are called on the web,
 is immediately E of Interstate 15 and S of Hwy 76.

As we passed through the houses on a path to the pond,
I noticed the sign and decided to read up on Civil Code 846!

846 CHAPTER 2. Obligations of Owners [840 - 848]  ( Enacted 1872. )
(a) An owner of any estate or real property,
 owes no duty to keep the premises safe for entry or use 
for any recreational purpose or to give any warning of 
hazardous conditions, uses of, structures, or activities 
on the premises to persons entering for a recreational purpose.

(b) "Recreational purpose" includes activities such as 
fishing, hunting, camping, water sports, hiking, riding, collecting, 
sightseeing, picnicking, nature study, and viewing or enjoying 
historical, archaeological, scenic, natural, or scientific sites.

(c) An owner of any estate or real property who gives permission
 to another for entry or use for the above purpose 
upon the premises does not thereby do any of the following:

(1) Extend any assurance that the premises are safe.
(2) Agree that a person to whom access has been granted gains 
legal status of a formal invitee (to whom a duty of care is owed).
(3) Assume liability for any injury to person or property caused 
by the person to whom permission has been granted.

(d) This does not limit liability which exists for any of the following:
(1) Willful or malicious failure to guard or warn against dangerous conditions.
(2) Injury suffered in any case where permission to enter
was granted for monetary consideration.
(3) Any persons who are invited rather than merely permitted 
to come upon the premises by the landowner.
(e) This section does not create a duty of care or ground of liability 
for injury to person or property.
(Amended by Stats. 2018, Ch. 92, Sec. 33. (SB 1289) Effective January 1, 2019.)
