National Night Out Tuesday, August 3, 2021
Join us for a Free Swim and Potluck. Bring a dish and a wish for the neighborhood of our dreams.
Apparently someone took exception to our community self-guerrilla gardening action. Maybe they didn’t like the plants we chose?
One theory being circulated is that RCTC is planning to do a major landscape upgrade along the portion of the line through the neighborhood, investing the resources healthy communities deserve and that should have been part of the project originally.
Neighbors and UCR students also deserve to have access to their trails and the Box Springs Mountains Preserve again.
No one is buying a safety issue regarding visibility. We have state of the art Quiet Zones. No reason we shouldn’t have the state of neighborhood art when it comes to our landscaping preferences.
Especially when it’s crowd sourced FREE, and a whole lot better that what we got from RCTC and the Ghost Train. See Average Ridership Numbers Below 2018.

Love Riverside 2018 brings another instant green space in the neighborhood.
University Neighborhood gardeners are not deterred by a little rain. They’ve been know to exclaim, “hell yes, let’s plant something!”
So we did. Thanks to all the volunteers who proved once again, many hands make short work.
Here’s After. Check it out.
Save the Date. Love Riverside Day of service will be Saturday, October 13, 2018.
This year’s project is greenscaping the Metrolink fence on Mt. Vernon Ave. We have some yucca, firesticks and agave to plant. Guerilla Gardeners welcome.
Bring a shovel, water, gloves and wear shoes. Park on Linden St.

A morning make-over. Looking for a few volunteers.
We can use a few with shovels, and a pick up would make quick work of transporting plant starts.
Start the day at Sherman Indian School, have some coffee and rolls.
Photos and off to an morning make-over.

Mountain Biking in Sycamore Canyon Park has always been a special treat. With vast changes in elevation and long stretches of trails, the largest wilderness park within City Limits West of the Mississippi continues to attract biking enthusiasts. But be warned, according to riders interviewed in Suzanne Hurt’s Press Enterprise story must be “willing to suffer.”
The 22-mile Mountains to Sea Trail travels from the edge of the Cleveland National Forest to the Pacific Ocean. Considered the backbone of The Irvine Ranch open spaces, the trail begins in Weir Canyon and doesn’t stop until it reaches Upper Newport Bay. Located within minutes of bustling urban communities, the trail makes exploring the outdoors easy, fun and accessible. Irvine Company Chairman Donald Bren announced completion of the trail in 2005; the following year it was designated a “National Recreation Trail” by the National Recreation Trails Program.
If the State is willing to accept some help, it’s no wonder it’s getting easier for residents to initiate and complete the upkeep for their neighborhood treasures. Read more from the Wall Street Journal.
