If you're heading to the river from the Red Car Property neighborhood, we recommend walking or biking there.  Show respect for our neighbors.  Elysian Valley is primarily a residential neighborhood with limited parking.  Special events can easily overwhelm the narrow streets. If you are taking your bike to the river, we remind you to slow down and share the path with pedestrians.
