Monte Rio Update

The Monte Rio Recreation and Park District is hosting their second Holiday Wonderland Craft Faire on Friday, December 18th from 11AM to 7PM., Saturday, December 19th from 10AM to 6PM, and Sunday, December 20th from 10AM to 4PM, and the Monte Rio Community Center. This is the very last craft fair in West County before the holidays so plan to come and shop!

The Monte Rio tennis courts are getting a long-needed revival. Once they are completed there will also be a regulation sized basketball court adjacent. Enthusiasts for both sports will find these beautiful courts available seven days a week once completed, weather permitting, by December (of course, if the weather doesn’t hold, it will be early spring).

The main Monte Rio beach is closed for the season and all kayaks, canoes, concession stands etc., have been removed. The lower beach parking lot is locked until we reopen next year. However, it is still accessible by foot. And of course, the down river (West) beach is always open to dogs and their owners, as is the Koret Park. We ask that you clean up after your pet and do have clean up bags available at the park.

Congratulations to Suzi Schaffert and Peter Andrews for being elected to the MRRPD Board of Directors.

Attention Monte Rio residents and business owners: A new group is forming called Monte Rio Watch. Its purpose is to focus on clearing out crimes associated with drug sales and use as well as to unite the community. The core group is working with law enforcement as well as county officials to ensure that all actions are legal and to enhance Monte Rio’s relationship with these entities. A community meeting will be scheduled once the mission of the organization is completed. Citizens of Monte Rio have long wanted to find a way to take action against the handful of unscrupulous individuals in their community. This group hopes to attain this and more. Stay tuned for more information about Monte Rio Watch.
