Yes, school has returned, after a fashion, to the campuses of Riverbank, but that doesn’t mean there’s no summer fun left to be had.
Daylight Savings Time doesn’t end until Sunday, Nov. 1 this year. And summer doesn’t officially end until Tuesday, Sept. 22, so there’s still plenty of daylight available in the afternoon and evening to continue outdoor activities.
While hours and days for recreational and lap swim at the Riverbank Swimming Pool have been extended through August, there’s also free fun available to those wishing to learn, or perhaps hone, skateboarding skills at the Skate Park at First and Santa Fe streets.The bowl, the ramps, edges, steps and rails available remain at the ready, just waiting to be attacked and overcome. All it takes is a little practice. And it’s available to skaters of all ages and skill levels; a good way to get in some exercise and outdoor activity in these pandemic times.
