Mountain Area Preservation is excited to announce a $15,000 donation to the Trout Creek Pocket Park on behalf of the Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD). This donation will support a solar light fixture and native landscaping for the park site. The TDPUD is partnering with MAP to help support the infrastructure costs associated with the creation of the Pocket Park, located at Bridge and Jibboom Streets in Historic Downtown Truckee.
The Trout Creek Pocket Park and Restoration Initiative has been part of the Truckee Downtown Specific Plan’s vision since 1997. This project will revitalize and restore an urban natural resource and neglected landscape by creating a green open space and park setting for visitors and locals to enjoy along the creek’s edge.
MAP plans to break ground this spring and believes that the Trout Creek Pocket Park will be the catalyst for more green spaces throughout downtown Truckee. We are still in need of donations to support this effort. Please contact Nikki Riley at 530-582-6751 or Nikki@mapf.org to contribute to the Friends of Trout Creek and learn more about this project.
