Coronavirus Updates

At this time, more than ever, we are reminded of the important role parks play in our community’s physical and social well-being. We hope you are well and safe, and that our park serves as a welcome respite for you, especially now.


Here at the River Park:


  • The safety of our community and staff is a top priority. In adherence to Santa Clara County direction, the Visitor & Education Center and Rotary PlayGarden will be closed until the shelter-in-place order is lifted. You may reach staff via email at during regular office hours.
  • The park and trail remains open, and to support the mental and physical health of our community, we are encouraging folks to visit the River Park to exercise and remain active, while practicing proper social distancing.
  • Many of our programs are paused in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Staff is working to line up school field trips, summer camps, volunteer opportunities, and others for summer and the rest of the year. We are also exploring opportunities to deliver select education offerings online. Other programs, such as Adopt a Rose, are still available.
  • The grass is lush, our Historic Orchard trees are budding, the Heritage Rose Garden is beginning to bloom, and more diverse wildlife are spotted again along the River Park. While we shelter-in-place, our Valley’s natural asset continues to persevere.


We can’t wait to reopen and welcome back our supporters. The shelter-in-place order has highlighted something our board president, Jodi Starbird, mentioned in her recent message: that the intangible importance of parks is most apparent in times of crisis, but has always served this function for our community now and in our future.
