We always welcome rain at the River Park, but sometimes a lot of rain can be a little bit of a problem for our streets. Do you need some sandbags to keep your head above water? Well, come on down to Lakeside's River Park Conservancy! Sandbags are regularly available Mondays through Fridays from 8am-4pm when our gates are open.
We will also open our gates Saturday, February 18th, from 9am to Dusk to take into account the upcoming storm and our hope to keep our community safe and relatively dry. We are located right off the 67 freeway at 12108 Industry Road, Lakeside, CA 92040, on the corner of Winter Gardens and Industry Road. Just pull into our gates and the big pile of sand will be right next to the two shipping containers on site. We have the sand and the sandbags, but you may want to bring your own shovel.
Questions? Give us a call at 619-443-4770 and we'd love to talk with you. We got the sand, we got the bags, and we got just a couple of shovels so you may want to bring your own. The catch? You'd have to fill them up yourselves.
Stay safe, stay warm, and try to stay dry!
NOTE: The River Park does have an active construction project on site, so please take extreme caution when coming for sandbags. Safety is our top priority!
