The Fall Quarter's Activity Schedule is now available. See the fun, free "Get Out, Get Active" activities the River Park is offering in October, November and December. Here are some of the fun things on offer:
October 3, 2004 was a special evening, when four very talented vocalists performed songs that the Sikes family would have known and loved in the 1870s and 1880s. The purpose of the concert was to raise funds for the ongoing restoration of the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. Proceeds will be used to purchase items of furnishings.
Join Park staffer Barbara Baker as she travels the "Coast to Crest Trail" and other San Dieguito River Park Trails, revealing pieces of the valley's history along the way and sharing with us the tales she hears.
