Welcome to the American River Parkway Foundation

The American River Parkway is the Sacramento Region’s greatest recreational asset. The Parkway includes the Lower American River, over thirty miles of meandering equestrian/hiking trails, and one of the country’s best Class I bike paths. The Parkway Foundation is honored to act as one of the stewards through our work to maintain and improve this 4,800-acre natural resource. Within our website, users can learn about Parkway Foundation programs and events, find ways to volunteer, and discover different parks and aspects of the Parkway, which receives over 8 million visits each year.

Due to COVID-19 All volunteer events have been cancelled until further notice.

Volunteers are fundamental to the success of the American River Parkway Foundation and to ensuring the Parkway is here for generations to come.

With great consideration, the Foundation is putting all our volunteer activities on hold due to Sacramento County’s Public Health Order of May 26 requirements.  We are coordinating with State and County health officials and will resume volunteer activities when guidelines have been established to keep our volunteers healthy.

Thank you for all you’ve done and we look forward to your critical support in the future
