Riparian After Dark



December 6 & 7

December 13 & 14
December 20 & 21

The Riparian Preserve comes alive with a holiday glow!  Stroll around the candle-lit trail at Water Ranch lake with hundreds of luminaries as well as numerous festive light displays at every turn. This is a rare opportunity for those who appreciate nature to experience the thrill of nighttime at the preserve. In addition to the lighted trail, we will feature a variety of school choirs, carolers and other live holiday entertainment.  There will be light refreshments available for purchase.

Each night of the event Gilbert partners with a local non-profit agency and collects items for that group to distribute to those in need.  Please consider bringing a donated item to the event as your way of supporting those in need during the holiday season. 

Event Parking
Parking is available at the Southeast Regional Library.  Entrances to the library are on both Greenfield Road and Guadalupe Road.  Event entrance is located on the Guadalupe Road parking lot side.  If parking at one of the local businesses, please be courteous of the site, and do not leave trash or block customer parking.  There will be no parking available at the Riparian Preserve parking lot after 5pm on event days. 

Event Accessibility
This event is held on the paved trails around the preserve and is fully accessible by strollers, wheelchairs and walkers. Please do not allow children to climb on light displays. Violators will be asked to leave the event. Pets on a leash are welcome at the event. Please clean up after your pets.
