Truckee Regional Park
The pristine Truckee Regional Park is a hub for Truckee locals and visitors alike. Located directly across the street from Winter Creek, this 62 acre park is one of the most diverse Regional Parks in the Tahoe Basin or America for that matter with free amenities for all. Where else can you play softball, kick-ball, tennis, basketball, Frisbee golf, ice skate, have a picnic on the Truckee River, walk or run along the 3 mile Legacy Trail, fly-fish, see great concerts, watch a professional rodeo, or enjoy a state of the art skate park?
NATURE & RIVER TRAILS – The nature trail winds through the Regional Park. This trail exhibits 12 different native and naturalized plant communities of the Truckee area. With picnic sites and benches along the way, the river trail runs along the beautiful Truckee River section of the park for swimming, fishing, fly-fishing, walking, running, biking, and just plain relaxing.
“SALTY” GEBHARDT AMPHITHEATRE – This landscaped bowl offers comfortable lawn seating and overlooks a wonderful stage set above the Truckee River. The amphitheatre plays host to more than 15 concerts a summer including the wildly popular “Wednesday Night Concert Series”. While you cannot hear the concerts from Winter Creek, you can and should take the short walk to enjoy the great live entertainment.
TENNIS COURTS – Feel like batting the fuzz? Take your racquets across the street to the two tennis courts available for free public use. In addition to game improvement clinics, these courts also play host to small public tennis leagues.
ICE SKATING – In the winter, the outdoor ice skating rink is the place to gather around the fire pit. The rink hosts broomball and ice hockey leagues too. A staple in the community for many years, the rink offers skate rentals, lessons, and an all around good time for adults and families alike.
FARMER’S MARKET – On Tuesdays in the summer and in to early fall, the Regional Park hosts the Foothill Farmer’s Market. Nowhere else can you walk across the street and buy your fresh weekly produce and snacks like you can at Winter Creek Homes!
PLAYGROUND – For the little ones, the park offers a wonderful playground too. With swings, slides, a jungle gym, merry-go-round, and all the playground essentials, the playground makes for a wonderful afternoon adventure for toddlers.
DISC GOLF – Bring your own discs and enjoy Truckee’s 18-hole course overlooking the Truckee River. Known for being both challenging and beautiful, everyone should try disc golf at least once.
RODEO ARENA – This regulation-size arena seats up to 4,000 and every summer hosts to the ever popular Truckee Professional Rodeo. An American tradition, this rodeo is a “must attend” event for any Truckee visitor or home owner.
SKATE PARK – One of Northern California’s premier skate parks! This free park is open daily from dawn to dusk and is known for hosting some of the best skateboarders in the county.
