Johnson-Springview Park was recently upgraded to better serve residents who frequently use the park and its facilities, and more improvements are underway. Ten new handicap spaces in the parking lot were completed in June after the need for additional ADA parking was identified. Every new space allows for senior and disabled residents to better access Johnson-Springview and its facilities.
More than 150 Rocklin residents kicked off their Labor Day weekend on Aug. 30 by being part of the first group to officially walk the newly opened West Trails at the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area.
The West Trails offer 2.7 miles of paths, ranging from the parking lot and main trail access at 4201 Midas Avenue to secondary trail access points at Whitney Blvd. and at Sunset Blvd.
The special opening ceremony included remarks from Rocklin City leaders and volunteers, a ribbon cutting and the inaugural walk.
