We #LoveTheParkway. We Want You to Show How You Do Too

The American River Parkway is more than just another park. It’s everyone’s backyard.

Stretching 23 miles from the Sacramento River to Hazel Avenue, the Parkway allows everyone to connect with nature without leaving the urban core. It’s the home to a variety of wildlife, flora and fauna, is made up of diverse habitats and provides multiple opportunities for recreation. There is no other park like it in the country.

The American River Parkway Foundation launched the #LoveTheParkway Campaign to engage the community in the stewardship of this precious resource and encourage the community to get out and explore the Parkway. We will integrate the messaging into everything we do, including; social media, newsletter communications, education on trail etiquette, programs, advocacy and merchandise.

This is a great opportunity for you to show your love for the Parkway as well.
