COVID-19 Safety Information

What we're doing to ensure your safety at Riverwood amid COVID-19

The Riverwood Conservancy has always taken the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and program participants seriously, and COVID-19 has only heightened our sense of responsibility to you and your family. We’ve answered some common questions about visiting the park, and our programs and safety protocols, below.

When can I visit the park?

Riverwood’s trails and gardens are open to the public, and the park is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Parking is always free.

If you’re feeling unwell, please stay at home. If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance of visiting a health care facility.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep our community safe and healthy.
