It’s time to celebrate!  Although we can’t celebrate the way we had hoped, we’re organizing a series of events to commemorate the Town of Riverside turning 100.

Now a much-loved neighbourhood in the City of Windsor, Riverside was incorporated as a Town in May, 1921.  Though amalgamated by the City of Windsor in 1966, Riverside still maintains its “small-town” charm with its walkability, great shops and bustling schools and a close-knit community of friendly people.

To commemorate the anniversary visit Riverside Branch, to pick up your RIVERSIDE’S 100TH GOODIE BAG (while supplies last).  We will also be offering a Riverside-based trivia game and an Escape Room (set in Riverside Arena), both of which can be played virtually.  Later in the year, we hope to offer a speaker series, featuring notable Riverside residents.

Check out our latest eNewsletter which features the anniversary and watch a video about the Riverside community.

    My home from a young age (5) through most of my adult years.
    1813 Riverside Dr. E. when address changed with amalgamation.
    Such a beautiful home, yet minutes away from Detroit MI. where anything & everything could be found.
    We even had Frank Mahovlich living across the street. He could drive to Olympia stadium within minutes, before all this border shutdown, & many other complication interfered with our lives. Riverside was Paradise on earth for me & my chums.
    A Tunnel bus ride from the Formula 1 Grand Prix, , concerts, shopping, then back home to a place where you didn’t have to lock your doors.
