Rocklin Adventures at Quarry Park Open House
The first public open house to review initial design plans for the Rocklin Adventures at Quarry Park project will be held on Wednesday, March 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Rocklin City Council Chambers.
The meeting will begin with a brief presentation from City Manager Rick Horst followed by Legacy Family Adventures, the eventual park operator and contractor responsible for the initial 30 percent design of the project. Preliminary site layouts and drawings will be available for review by the public with information including proposed attractions, target market demographics, pricing, parking and more.
Rocklin Adventures is intended is to provide family entertainment for both tourists and local residents with a mix of rock climbing and adventure related offerings augmented by quality food service and small retail store. The project has the potential to be a catalyst for commerce and development in Rocklin’s Quarry District, attracting customers to local businesses and generating tax revenues that could be used to sustain vital services and quality of life in the City.
The Rocklin City Council approved an agreement in January that contracted LFA to design 30 percent of the adventure park, enabling the City to more thoroughly evaluate park elements and to request proposals from design/build contractors. If built, LFA would operate the park with a revenue sharing agreement with the City.
Rocklin Adventures would be the second phase of Quarry Park development, which began with a successful first summer concert series in 2016 at the new Platinum Living Amphitheater. The City also plans to replace the aging Fire Station 1 adjacent to Quarry Park and repurpose the building to better coincide with park activities and commerce in the area.
In all Quarry Park development, special attention will be paid to the historical significance of the area. Architecture, antique fixtures, and other design aspects will be incorporated honoring what was once a center of the bustling early California granite industry, where stone was processed to help build the California State Capital Building.
