Things To Do
Horse activities are readily available, including membership in the Santa Rosa Plateau Riding Club, with monthly pot-luck dinners, annual Harvest Dinner Dance, monthly trail rides, and special events. Membership does not require that you ride. In fact, a high percentage of members are non-riders, who simply love being around equestrian folks.
Ladies Luncheons are another activity we look forward to each month. All Plateau ladies and their guests are welcome to these pot-luck luncheons, which move around to volunteer homes on the Plateau. This is a lovely way to get to know a diverse group of women, who we may not have an opportunity otherwise to meet. The year typically closes with the festive and beautifully catered Holiday Luncheon.
As the 8000-acre Ecological Reserve is just 90 seconds away from the front entrance to La Cresta, we are blessed to easily participate in the many activities they sponsor. Hikers, you will be in heaven, as you navigate trails to the historic adobes, Tenaja Falls and the world-famous Vernal Pools. Becoming wildly popular is the Summer Concert Series, which highlights cover bands, who perform under the ancient oaks pavilion behind the Visitors Center on Clinton Keith.
Our annual 4th of July Parade is really something to behold. If you are old enough to remember Mayberry RFD, no further explanation needed. Picture mini-horse drawn carriages, tractors, recreational vehicles, dancing horses, dogs, vintage cars, kids, trailers full of people, and even our local Fire Station 75 rig. This annual offering is sponsored by the Riding Club and has become a staple calendar event not to be missed.
Plateau residents seem to resonate with “to that much is given, much is expected”. In that spirit, many folks take their philanthropy seriously, resulting in tons of events, fund-raisers, parties and good will. The Santa Rosa Plateau Foundation is particularly close to our hearts, as they use the backdrop of the Ecological Reserve to serve the community in a number of ways, including bringing every 3rd grader in Riverside County public schools up for a day in nature.
If all of that is not enough to keep you busy, there are a number of small group activities, such as Bunco, Bingo, Game Night, Art Classes, Wine & Appetizers, etc. If you want to start something new, chances are you will be in good company, as we prefer to keep ourselves entertained on "the Hill".
Living on the Santa Rosa Plateau, the activities are ENDLESS. Only one requirement…
