Whitewater Park at Rock Park

Whitewater Park

Sparks Mayor, City Council members, City Manager and local dignitaries try out the new park.

Rock Park, located along the Truckee River in Sparks, is home to one of the hottest new whitewater attractions in the region! The 30 year old park, originally built with land/water conservation grant funding, now houses an exciting recreational destination with pools for kayaking, tubing and rafting for all abilities.

The park's recreational opportunities are diverse, whether at the water's edge, within the channel, or in the rehabilitated landscape. Additional enhancements include increased parking areas, new shade structures and play structures, and upgrades to the river trail system that travels through the area.

The City of Sparks pursued the development of the environmentally friendly recreational facility as part of an ongoing effort for urban revitalization and river corridor beautification. The resulting design allows for greater public access to the river, including handicap entry in two different places.
