Dear River Parkway Trust Supporters:

As of March 16 th, the River Parkway Trust will be closing public access at both the River Center and Sycamore Island through approximately the end of April, and cancelling public events of all sizes during the same timeframe. We are making this change to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through our community.

We encourage all of our members and volunteers to be diligent in following the CDC and California Department of Public Health Guidelines to prevent the spread of disease. Wash your hands, maintain 6 feet of social distance in public spaces, and stay at home whenever possible. If we work together to stop the spread of this virus, we will shorten the timeframe of its impact.

Our staff will be working staggered schedules so that those who are able to work from home can do so. We will be keeping our seasonal part time employees on the payroll during this period of reduced activity, and have already received a generous donation to make up for some of our cancelled programs.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging time. We look forward to seeing you again soon out on the San Joaquin River Parkway.
