Rocker Memorial Skatepark
The goal of the Rocker Memorial Skatepark Project is to provide Truckee/North Lake Tahoe with a state of the art, 25,000 square foot skatepark to benefit the entire community. The park will also be capable of hosting world-class competitions that will increase year-round tourism and generously give back to the community that is helping make this dream a reality.
Rocker Memorial Skatepark will provide a place for skaters of all ages and abilities while also serving as a centralized community meeting place for all area skaters. We believe that this project will also serve as a reminder of the impact one person can have and the importance of carrying that legacy into the future to change lives through skateboarding.

About the Skatepark
Rocker Memorial Skatepark is a grassroots effort to construct a brand new, state-of-the-art 25,000 foot skatepark in Truckee, California. Our committee overcame the most important hurdle during the summer of 2015 when Truckee Donner Recreation & Park District approved our plan and granted us use of the land at the corner of Estates Drive and Brockway Road adjacent to the existing skatepark. With approval granted, we are now actively fundraising and moving forward with the project. We look forward to your involvement and support!
