If I'm not mistaken, Lake Olympia was east of today's Sutton Way at Plaza Drive, see the map at http://tinyurl.com/ltogg or http://local.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&cp=39.231173~-121.033115&style=h&lvl=16&scene=3374207&sp=aN.39.231322_-121.033330_Lake%20Olympia__ (you can toggle between photo and road maps on there).
When I tromped through the area about five years ago, there were a lot of concrete foundations and other "landmarks" among the weeds. It's east of the theater buillding, across the road.

- Come to think of it, when I worked as a dispatcher at Grass Valley PD
in the early 80s, there was a Sergeamt there named Vince Seck, who told
me of his family having run (or even owned?) the place at Lake Olympia
some years ago. Seck is no doubt long since retired, but he may still
be around town.
