[ARCHIVED] In the spirit of Picnic Like it's 1869

Rainbow Over Swan Pond

Calling all picnic hampers – both antique and backpack.  It’s that time of year when Riverside celebrates Picnic Like It’s 1869.

In a normal year, we would gather together on a Sunday (weather permitting) for music and crafts, and most importantly, that iconic vista at Swan Pond. This year, we cannot gather together, but we can still picnic.

With 9 parks, 2 commons, 46 triangles, and abundant natural areas, there is a socially distant, picnic-friendly spot in this village for every Riverside resident!

Before the leaves fall on 2020, spend time in the outdoor beauty of Riverside. Whether picnicking, exploring, relaxing, or playing, enjoy our landscape responsibly by keeping it clean. We’ll picnic together in 2021.
