Riverside is beautiful little neighborhood that is just outside of Ferndale Boro. It is a wonderful place to live and raise your family. It is tight knit, quiet and with its flat streets and consistent recreational activity it reminds you of the neighborhoods of the past. Some of the highlights of this wonderful community are as follows:
The Riverside Volunteer Fire Company
This very hard working group is responsible for many of the wonderful events that happen in Riverside. They do many fundraisers throughout the year so that they can give back to the community. Whether it is a visit from Santa or the beautiful votive lights that are out at Christmas time these fine people go above and beyond the call of duty to make the community better. Be sure to check the sign at the fire hall for upcoming events. You don’t want to miss their delicious all you can eat breakfast buffet.
Riverside Community Yard Sale
This annual event attracts hundreds of people to the community and is highlighted by the Fire Company’s Chicken Barbecue. It is amazing how many parking places the people attending can find throughout the streets and yards of Riverside. Get there early because most of the quality items are gone by 9:00.
There are several businesses that operate in the community. They are Maticic’s Service station, Family Hair Care, Ameristar Home Mortage, Stuver’s Nursery, Ray’s Nursery, and Riverside Self Storage.
There is also the Moxham trail which runs through Riverside and is rumored to soon be connected to Greenhouse Park. This is the source of much controversy in the community as people are worried that if the path is connected it will bring unwanted traffic and trouble into the neighborhood from the park. The people associated with the park feel that it will be a great boost to the events they have there and make the park itself much more accessible.
