Weekends on the Rio © 2016
activating places & spaces
A generous grant from Colorado Health funds the Weekends on the Rio program, with an expanded Sundays at Six concert schedule and outdoor activities such as yoga, running clinics, bike pump tracks and paddle boarding at Cole Park and Rio Grande Farm Park.
Weekends on the Rio adds a variety of fun activities for youth and families to enjoy on the weekends, as well as year-round activities to get people outside and enjoy the Rio Grande Corridor. Our team came together to try to figure out how to get people more engaged in the community and enjoy our parks.
In the winter, families and youth will get a chance to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing with free rentals and some teaching from the members of the San Juan Nordic Club. These programs will generally fall on Saturdays, with times and dates to be announced.
An exciting year-round program called Walk2Connect will begin in August. Program founder Jonathan Stalls will be in Alamosa on Aug. 1-3 to work with and train anyone who wishes to lead weekly walks throughout Alamosa and other communities. He will design some walks, do a keynote address, and take the community on some amazing walks!
There are more activities in store. The Adams State Adventure Program and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the San Luis Valley will work with the Rio Grande Farm Park to provide three one-week Summer Adventure Camps in June 2017. This camp will be designed over the winter, and will be provided to three age groups
Please come out and enjoy all that these programs have to offer. The Weekends on the Rio committee has great plans to make the Rio Grande Corridor full of fun and adventure!
