Parks & Recreation

The City of Riverside is very proud of it's parks.

* Railroad Park: located on Highway 22 across from the Riverside Museum. The park offers modern safe playground equipment, a restored early 1900's merry go-round, shelter house and modern clean restrooms.

* Veteran's Memorial Park: also located on Highway 22, this beautiful park was a community effort to honor our troops both past and current. Sit by the peaceful water feature and reflect on how much our forces have done for all of us.

* Hall Park: Right off Highway 22, turn south at Casey's. This park is the hub for most summer activites in Riverside. The Riverside Ball Association organizes and plays all kinds of baseball from Spring to Fall. The Annual Trek Fest celebration is held here the last full weekend of June each year. The Fest features many Star Trek related events, such as costume contests, viewing of Trek episodes and live entertainment. The Annual State Fair Talent Show is held each year and many of Riverside Winners have gone to capture the State Fair Title. Beautiful covered shelter house is part of an old barn. Modern restroom facilities and a kid friendly playground.

* Conservation Park: Off Highway 22, turn North at Casey's. This beautiful rustic park is what nature lovers want. A large well stocked pond is ready to be fished. A handicapped accessible fishing deck is also a wonderful place to just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Rustic restrooms are available and running water. A small shelter house with tables make this a great destination for a good old family picnic,
