Quarry Park Pond 0872

The Rocklin Quarry Park pond is a wonderful place to relax or have a photo op.

The new Rocklin Quarry Park opens officially April 16th. It will incorporate much of the Big Gun Mining Company's granite quarry within its trails.

 

Rocklin was known for its fine polished granite shipped world wide. Many of Sacramento's old buildings including the state capitol feature some of Rocklin's granite. Even in more modern times many famous building such as the Transamerica Building in San Francisco feature granite from this quarry. Closed in 2011, Rocklin acquired the land and is turning it into a regional park.
