Santa Ana River-Paradise Beach

Riverside, California

This section of the Santa Ana River is located south of Limonite Avenue and Downy Street. Walking down the path towards the riverbank grants access to the Santa Ana River. This section of the river is a perfect location for swimming, wading, and other river activities.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
