Window on the River Park

Window on the River Park, Presented by Knight Foundation is our signature annual celebration where we uplift our community’s commitment to nurturing and cherishing the Guadalupe River Park, San Jose’s front yard and a civic greenway that connects people to nature and each other.

Thank You to Our 2022 Presenting Conservator


We are thrilled to announce our Presenting Conservator for this year’s Window on the River Park, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation!

The Knight Foundation are social investors who support a more effective democracy by funding free expression and journalism, arts and culture in community, research in areas of media and democracy, and in the success of American cities and towns where the Knight brothers once published newspapers.

Knight Foundation supports inclusive and equitable engagement in communities where the Knight brothers owned and operated newspapers. They believe an engaged community is one where people are attached to the place where they live and are invested in the community’s future.

Support by Knight Foundation has accelerated the programs and impact of the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, particularly through their three-year investment to build a community vision, bolster the leadership capacity of our organization, and further connect people to nature and each other. Please join us as we celebrate this partnership milestone, convene in community with our supporters and partners, and share the future direction of the Conservancy and the Guadalupe River Park as the front yard of San Jose.
