We have members as young as 30 and as old as 80, all races, all genders and we welcome everyone! That being said I'd say the average age of our neighbors who participate on a regular basis is between 40 and 60. If you are younger than 35 this group is probably not for you.
Downtown Riverside has much to offer! You can hike Mt. Rubidoux in the morning and see the sun rise, or take a mid morning stroll through Fairmount Park. Enjoy a glass of wine at the Mission Inn or dinner at The Salted Pig . See a favorite band or play at the Fox Theater or check out an exhibit at the Riverside Art Museum. And if you live here you can do it all without getting into your car!
I started this group in Dec. 2012 because I moved back to Riverside after 20 years in Orange County and wanted to reconnect with Riverside and my new neighbors who enjoy doing these things as well. Since then we've added over 200 members and our participation rate is excellent (at least that is what I've been told).
You don't have to live in Downtown Riverside to be a neighbor. I personally live close to the Mission Inn but anyone who enjoys spending time in Riverside is welcome and encouraged to join.
Three important things:
1. For the safety of all our members you will need to have a picture of yourself posted on your profile
2. We understand that life can get busy and plans can change, but if you RSVP yes and you cannot make it please do us the courtesy of changing your RSVP. That being said, if you are a no show 3 times we will have to remove you from the group.
3. If you do not attend or even visit this page for more than 2 months you will be removed from the group. If your schedule frees up so that you are able to participate we'll be happy to add you again.
