Rocker Memorial Skatepark
The Rocker Memorial Skatepark will be built and shredded in honor of a friend of the community, Steve “Rocker” Anderson, who passed away in an avalanche on Donner summit December 24, 2012. Skateboarding is about spending good times with friends, and if Rocker’s passing could teach us something, its to spend our time where it counts, having fun with friends.
