Riverside has an active pioneer spirit. Because the city is only a few years old, its residents chose the slogan "Building a Bright Future" for the town motto.
Riverside sits five minutes northeast of Dayton in urban Montgomery County. Located in the heart of the region's high technology sector, this small, one-mile square city of 25,000 is poised for the future. Everywhere new neighborhoods are springing up offering affordable middle-income homes to support the area's high tech needs. Housing covers the gamut from modest cape cods, to ranch homes, to traditional three and four bedroom new housing developments.
Riverside lies along I-75, with I-70 just to the north, and St. Rt. 35 to the south. Riverside residents know using the Wright Brothers Parkway to avoid traffic snarls through the downtown is a well-kept secret.
Hospitals within a 10-mile radius include Children's Medical Center, Kettering Medical Center, Miami Valley Hospital, and Good Samaritan Hospital.
Riverside is in the process of attracting more retail to the area, but clusters of neighborhood shops and restaurants serve residents needs.
Riverside's proximity to downtown provides an opportunity for residents to enjoy numerous arts, sports and educational offerings. Eastwood Lake and Park offers boating and fishing, hiking and picnic adventures in a city atmosphere. Riverside offers four city parks with active playground programs. Being just next door to the U.S. Air Force Museum and the National Aviation Hall of Fame is sure to appeal to aviation buffs.
