Sunset Whitney Recreation Area

Overview

Sunset Whitney Recreation Area
Also known as the former Rocklin Golf Club

This property is currently closed to the public. For the safety of all citizens, public access is currently prohibited in all areas. There is certainly a desire to provide access once the property has been deemed safe, and every effort will be made to arrive at that point as quickly as possible. 

As more information becomes available, we will post updates on this website.

Volunteer Day
Helping Hands SWRA Beautification Project

 

On April 21st, over 200 local youth arrived bright and early wielding shovels, rakes and smiles – ready to plant over 120 trees, 200 plants and paint 2 restroom facilities. The trees planted serve to replace those dead/hazardous trees which have been removed over the past several months.

General information

Update from the SWRA 1st Public Forum
Held at the Rocklin Event Center on Feb. 28th

Thank you to all of those who took the time to attend and provide their thoughtful feedback at the first Sunset Whitney Recreation Area (former golf course property) Forum.  The format of the forum was an “open house” setting with several different tables of information, many of which asked for input from attendees. With around 300 attendees, the input was tremendous!  Staff will review and summarize the input and present findings to the Park, Recreation and Art Commission likely at their next meeting on March 14. This summary will also be shared with the public.
