Once the site of a riverside trailer park, Lockwood Trailhead County Park was the fourth in a series of river restoration projects completed by Otis Bay on the lower Truckee River. At Lockwood Trailhead, OBEC provided design, construction work, and construction oversight for the creation of one new river meander, multiple riffles and pools, upland habitat hillocks, and two backwater wetlands. In addition to restoring riparian habitat at Lockwood Trailhead, OBEC added recreational features to create Lockwood Trailhead County Park. This included design and construction of approximately one mile of hiking trails, an entrance road, parking lots, a boat ramp, a restroom, picnic areas, benches, a bike rack, dumpster pads, directional and educational trailside signs, and a solar-powered drip irrigation system. Revegetation with both native and ornamental plants was installed to create shade for picnickers and river enthusiasts, as well as to provide habitat for riparian and upland species. OBEC installed permanent, low-maintenance, solar-powered drip irrigation for the ornamental plants, and handled maintenance of the site through the first growing season, which included weed control and temporary irrigation for native plants.
Completed in May of 2009, Lockwood Trailhead has become a popular destination for local anglers, birdwatchers, kayakers, hikers, bikers, and families. As of 2012, OBEC volunteered to adopt Lockwood Trailhead Park, which will entail ongoing maintenance, weed control, and supplemental planting as necessary.
