Join the Community for the White Rock Park Groundbreaking Ceremony

Cordova Recreation and Park District announces ground breaking for the White Rock Park Landscaping and Interactive Sprayground Improvements. The ceremony will be held on August 20th at 10:30 a.m. at White Rock Community Park, located at 10488 White Rock Road.

Cordova Recreation and Park District invites the community to a ground breaking celebration for the new White Rock Park! Funded in part with a grant from the State of California, White Rock Park will be undergoing major renovations in the near future. The project will include:

* Construction of a 2,500 square-foot Recreation Building to include a meeting room, restrooms, a field office, storage, and a small break room.

* Demolition and removal of the existing pool and two small structures currently housing pool equipment. The pool area will be redeveloped into a large “spray ground”. There will be no charge to use the sprayground, which will be operational during the warm months of the year.

* A new play area with a tot lot, youth play apparatus, and Discovery Play facility. Elements of the play area will include a climbing boulder complex, web climber, slides, swings, sand lot, and other play equipment.

* A shade structure with picnic tables and group barbeque.

* Three new basketball courts (two full courts and one split court).

* Renovation of the existing tennis courts.

* Additional amenities including picnic areas, benches, trash receptacles, soccer goals, small backstop, and pathway and landscape improvements.

    The only idea of this build is that of the building. That was approved by the City Council. Please note that nothing else was presented…. So, they will be only demolishing the pool and trailer and building and only building what they call the Community Center. Nothing else has been approved at this time. So, there will not be anything else built.

    Bye Bye Pool, not spray park to replace it either…. This is a sad day!!!

  3. Some Who wants to hear the truth

    I truly wish this was true, but with no money how can it be. The only permitted item is the building, this means the trailer, pool and I believe the basketball courts and stage goes to build this building. The only money that I am aware of is what the CPRD has approved for this building. I know that the City Council has only approved plans for the building. So, what I believe to be the true story is that we will have new building in White Rock, not exactly what I was wanting.

  4. This is sincerely great news. I’m thankful that we are going to see some results. In contrast to the opinion above, I actually consider this to be very good news for the White Rock area of Rancho Cordova. We have waited quite a long time for improvements to begin. The benefit of a spray park too is that it is free, and families in the area will not have to pay to play. A built-in pool would have been nice, but there are many downfalls to a built-in pool too (maintenance and repair costs are huge, not open every day, inevitable closing if it does not generate enough revenue, you have to pay to swim….).

    Lastly, I’ll mention that a group of committed residents have organized and attended many meetings over these past years to help advocate for these very improvements to come. These residents ought to be commended for their commitment to the community.

    • Ryan,

      This is really great news for the neighborhood. It’s a long time in the works, however it shows what can happen when residents really commit to making positive changes. When’s the BBQ?

      • Thanks Geoff. I’ll say that our park advocacy group was not the sole reason for this happening. I definitely don’t want to give that impression in the least. CRPD and City Council have been hashing things out and will hopefully continue to do so in order to get things done. They are ultimately the decison-makers, so I’m hoping for no kinks in the renovation plan. I am proud though of the way residents responded in the middle of all of this and took initiative to foster constructive conversation with CRPD (with a positive tone too – for the most part).

        The BBQ? Well, let’s just wait to let the shovels hit the ground first. As soon as the updates take shape, we do need to celebrate in a big way. This is an enormous win for the White Rock / Cordova Towne area.

  5. When someone gets a better understanding of the breakdown of funds, please post for us. Thanks.
