Trout Creek Pocket Park in Truckee nears completion

Special to the Sun

Mountain Area Preservation is honored to announce a $60,000 donation from the Kawyha Fund in support of the Trout Creek Pocket Park, located at the corner of Bridge and Jibboom streets in Historic Downtown Truckee.

The Kawhya Fund was created to respond to the needs of the community at a fast pace, with an emphasis on getting things done.

MAP broke ground at the Pocket Park on May 2, and construction is almost complete. The arrival of benches, tables the Art Bike Rack and the Interpretive Kiosk should take place in the coming months. Landscaping will follow this fall and we anticipate the installation of our first public art exhibit in 2018.

The Trout Creek Pocket Park has revitalized a neglected piece of downtown Truckee and transformed it into a gathering space adjacent to a beautiful waterway. We are not finished with this project and are still in need of donations to support this effort.
