North Riverside Access Park
North Riverside Park is located on the northern bank of the Kings River just downstream of Pine Flat Dam. Funded by a $285,000 grant through the California River Parkways Grant Program (Proposition 84) the North Riverside Park features a 1.5 multi-purpose trail directly accessing the Kings River, of which one-half mile is ADA accessible.
A one-half acre parking area with room for eleven cars and an adjoining two-stall ADA compliant restroom completes the access park area. Also featured are two interpretive kiosks, three picnic tables and visitor feedback stations. Located on property owned by Fresno County, this park is part of the Conservancy’s “Kings Ribbon of Gems.”
Also part of the North Riverside Park development, and funded by a generous grant from the Ted Martin Family, is the ongoing removal and control of invasive plant species along the walking trail. The Martin Family Grant also allowed for the refurbishing of the trout incubator house adjacent to the trail and expansion of the existing program managed by the Kings River Fisheries Management Program.
