Riverside Connects Families to Outdoor Recreation
Riverside residents enjoy immediate access to local parks and regional recreation spaces that promote family fun and exercise.
Five community parks offer fun, playgrounds and organized sports near city neighborhoods - mostly within walking distance of home for Riverside residents. These parks are where children ride bikes, practice soccer, play games and get exercise, in addition to being community gathering spaces.

Riverside’s Parks & Trails System
Rich in outdoor recreational resources, the City of Riverside is a popular destination for the many parks, trails, water access and greenspace. Riverside welcomes and encourages everyone to visit our parks for year around fun!
The City has four major parks, each with different activities for every season of the year; whether its organized sports such as baseball, softball, soccer or football, playing on the swing sets or just a leisure walk to enjoy the scenery, our parks offer something for everyone.
In addition to our City parks, you’ll find convenient access to one of the neighboring Five River Metro Parks.
