Friends of Santee’s River Park

Join the Community of Volunteers in Santee

santeeThe Friends of Santee's River Park is a community group compromised of individuals united in their goal of preserving and enhancing the San Diego River and surrounding park areas within the City of Santee. The Friends of Santee's River Park work in partnership with the City of Santee to encourage Santee residents to take ownership in their stretch of the San Diego River in an effort to maintain the fragile ecosystem and maintain the greenbelt and beautiful parks that surround it. The Friends were founded under the umbrella of the San Diego River Park Foundation, which is actively involved in supporting and developing this group and coordinating activities.
