Fathers and Sons

Time to Celebrate Dad!

It’s especially easy to celebrate holidays like Father’s Day when you live in a vibrant community under the idyllic California sun. There’s tons to do around here no matter what the special dad in your life loves! Whether he it’s sticking around the neighborhood or venturing around North Fontana and the surrounding cities, we’ve got dad (and everyone else in the family) covered this June.


Start off dad’s day with a visit around Shady Trails! Does he fancy an early-morning soak in the spa or a quick round on the putting green? Or maybe he’s a fan of a morning workout and wants to visit the tennis courts or the junior Olympic pool? All those features and more await him and his loved ones at The Parkhouse. If the younger kids need entertaining, Willow Park can host them at the tot lot while dad and company take advantage of the pickleball court.


After you’ve burned off some morning energy, it’s time for brunch! You’ve got your pick around North Fontana – we recommend Broken Yolk Café in Rancho Cucamonga and The Forum Blues Café in Rialto, where you’re sure to find delectable waffles and other breakfast classics. Psst: the father figure in your life deserves the mimosa flight at Broken Yolk Café!


Connect with nature and grab some amazing views (and pictures) of Fontana from above with a short hike up Mount Jurupa. This particular jaunt is for dads of all levels – you can make your trip a quick journey for some pictures or a full multi-mile trek through the wilderness, depending on dad’s preference! Take on a more relaxing nature encounter at Martin Tudor Jurupa Hills Regional Park with a walk around the lake or a restful picnic on a grassy knoll.


Really take dad back in time at the Riverside Game Lab – an indoor playground filled with arcade games (old and new school) as well as virtual reality experiences (very new school). If he’s looking to do an even cooler activity, The Cove Waterpark is another Riverside venue that will surely appeal to fathers and kids alike! Rent out a cabana as your home base for the afternoon and enjoy all the fun… slightly out of the sun.


Close out a day jam-packed with fun with a movie theater adventure at Cinemark Renaissance Marketplace. Would dad rather see the exciting conclusion to the new Jurassic World trilogy? The newest Top Gun reboot? Maybe he’s into comedy and would love The Bob’s Burgers Movie? There are tons of flicks for him to choose from!


Curl up with dad in your spacious living room at Shady Trails after a perfect Father’s Day to relive memories. Stay curious: ask about his favorite childhood toy or a fun experience he had in high school. The whole family will turn in for the evening with big smiles… and maybe some sore feet!
