Frederick Law Olmsted designed the parks in Riverside to provide changing vistas for both pedestrians & vehicles. His plan can be better realized by reducing shrub overgrowth, eliminating weeds & opening up the river view. Join us as we tame, and then maintain your public parks of Riverside.

The parks along Riverside Road and around Indian Gardens follow the meandering Des Plaines River.  Scottswood Common & The Longcommon, including Big Ball Park, serve as the backbone of Riverside’s landscape architecture. Both were intended ­­­­to be part of a green space stretching all the way to downtown Chicago. The triangle at Longcommon & Downing is one of the largest & most visible triangles in Riverside. It is complemented by the nearby triangle at Longcommon & Kent with it’s majestic Oak trees. Harrington Park, along Harlem Avenue, is the most recent green space to be designated as a Public Park. Patriots Park, along 26th Street, is the newest playground constructed.
