The River Rocks: LET’S BLAZE A TRAIL!

Once every decade or so an opportunity comes up that is truly transformational.

Ten years ago, our community pulled off what was considered by many to be impossible: we raised $2.3 million in six months to purchase the Aspinwall Marina to turn it into a riverfront park and catalyst for the trail system. A decade later, ARP is grateful to accomplish another incredible feat by completing a purchase that will double the size of our original purchase and secure the 1.5 miles of trail easement towards the city. This expanded park and trail will connect diverse communities and provide safe opportunities for generations of people to exercise, enjoy nature, and create family memories.

On October 1st, join us in celebrating the unlimited potential of our City, its riverfronts, and the Park at The River Rocks 2021: Let’s Blaze a Trail.

This is our first opportunity to add a major off road, riverfront connection in many years. Our goal is to blaze a trail – to get this new property open and ready for the public to enjoy in record time. How fast we accomplish this is up to us.

It takes innovation and every generation working together to blaze a trail. That’s why this year’s River Rocks Chairs represent volunteers from every generation: from volunteers in their 20s to a 90 year old still working to make our community better.

Be part of transforming our Riverfront for the next generation.
