Leaves are changing and cool autumn breezes are approaching, which means it’s time to celebrate the season at River Islands! There are so many ways to enjoy fall in our community, but here are our favorite ways to FALL in love with autumn.
Take a Nature Walk
Grab your walking shoes and your camera and enjoy the warm colors of nature on one of the many trails throughout the community, including the Bennie & Joyce Gatto Historic Trail! When you’re done, hit The Boathouse Restaurant for a warm and tasty meal.
Refine Your Art Skills with Virtual Paint Night
Spruce up your home with a work of art, handmade by you! The City of Lathrop and Kat’s Paint Parties are hosting monthly paint nights via Zoom from now until December. Each event is a different painting based on the season. Register for one or all of the sessions here.
