Open house scheduled Thursday
The city of Rocklin is partnering with the newly opened Final 9 Sports and RRUFF (Rocklin Residents United for Fido) to host three open house celebrations Thursday at Johnson-Springview Park. “This is an exciting opportunity to team up with these organizations and showcase the great things that are going on at the park,” said Parks and Recreation Director Gordon Holt. Open to the public from 3 to 5 p.m., will be the new Parks and Recreation office in the former library building on Fifth Street and the two meeting/activity rooms available for rent. Visitors can also check out the recently opened Final 9 Sports professional disc golf retail store selling disc golf discs, bags, baskets, apparel, dog discs, drinks, snacks and ice cream. “Disc golf is a growing sport, especially in Rocklin,” said Bruce Knisley, Final 9 Sports owner. “We are thrilled to be a party of the Rocklin community.” The Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Final 9 Sports at 4 p.m. In addition, dog-lovers are invited to check out the newly-opened dog park. “The dog park has been open for a few weeks, but this is an opportunity for the whole community to come out and view Rocklin’s first dog park,” said RRUFF (Rocklin Residents United For Fido) President Vicki Bottini Curtis. “The dog park is in a great location.
