The community of Riverside is a split town on both sides of Mad River that is a suburb of Dayton, Ohio. The gorgeous muttropolitan area offers a little of everything, including a thriving downtown area, with walkable streets, parks, and gorgeous watersport activities along the river. Most of the outdoor spaces are dog-friendly too so you can bring Fido along!
The Rohrers Farm Park is one of the most popular parks in the city, located in the northern half. The lush area has a well-kept lawn, surrounded by dense trees for shade and privacy. Inside the park is a perimeter trail made from asphalt, two fenced-in baseball fields, a pavilion, a playground, basketball courts, and restrooms. Dogs do have to be on a leash inside the area, but will enjoy water fountains, benches, trash bins, and clean-up stations.
Community Park is another dog-friendly park inside the city, located on the southern side of town. The park is a corner park, with asphalt trails, green space, and shaded sitting areas to relax under. There's a soccer field, a playground, a pavilion, benches, and water fountains.
Aside from the gorgeous scenery of Mad River, and it's close location to the major city of Dayton, Riverside offers hospitality and grace to humans and pups, and even has a nearby vet in the city of Dayton, only 1 mile away.
