The Perfect Holiday Gift
Truckee Community Park
Imagine your grandchildren traveling with their grandchildren to Lake Tahoe 100 years from now. In historic downtown Truckee, a new park offers a rare opportunity to purchase a personalized and engraved paver. If you haven’t already found that special holiday gift – consider purchasing a paver.
Commemorate a loved one, or add your family’s name to the history of Truckee. Not only are you helping to fund a much-needed park in our local community, you are leaving something to posterity.
Multiple local entities have come together to create this park. It will be located on the existing lot between Church and Jiboom streets in downtown Truckee.
The 1/4 acre lot in historic downtown Truckee will use natural materials that appeal to the local landscape. Many of these natural materials will also function as play structures. The park will be ADA-accessible and will include a sensory garden, an amphitheater and picnic area.
Concept Plan - Community Arts Center Truckee
RESERVE YOUR $300 PAVER TODAY - DEADLINE: DECEMBER 31, 2020
Pavers are 7 3/4" x 3 3/4". Maximum characters: 100. Logos must be line art and will be engraved in black.
Up until now, Truckee hasn’t had much open space in the downtown area for the community to use. The park will include a path from the parking lot to Church Street. The path along Church Street would include seating, tables, a water feature, and natural terrain meant for kids to play on.
Become a Part of Truckee's History
“Right now we’re calling it the new downtown community park, with maybe a name yet to be determined.” Mark Tanner of Truckee’s Mark Tanner Construction, is one of the driving forces behind the project. “I think it’s going to be a great addition to downtown Truckee because currently there is no special outdoor gathering place. This will be an awesome thing that is remembered for years and generations to come.”
The project will include repainting, and re-roofing the Truckee Community Arts Center. It will be built on the TDRPD’s Community Arts Center property and is a key element of the redevelopment project of historic downtown Truckee.
The current playground will be converted to include an outdoor amphitheater, sensory garden, picnic area, benches and natural boulders that will creatively function as play structures. The ADA-accessible park will serve as a welcome respite spot for people of all ages for many years to come.
The Gift of Legacy
Owning a second home or vacation property at Lake Tahoe can be the realization of a life-long dream. Many of our prestigious lakefront properties have remained in one family for generations. What makes a property a legacy home is the ability to share it with loved ones, and to build on lasting memories.
In the old days of Lake Tahoe, many of the lakefront homes were cabins or smaller properties that were torn down and renovated. Today, many of these legacy homes have been built with open floor plans and flexible living areas, larger dining rooms and designed for the changing dynamics of how families grow.
The Lake Tahoe real estate market continues to be strong and we are closing 2020 as a record breaking year of real estate activity.
