Riverside Playground is a public playground located in Riverside, Alabama. This playground enhances the quality of life of many resident's and the nearby communities by providing safe, healthy recreational opportunities for children 2 to 12 years of age.
Riverside is a small town located on the beautiful Coosa River with a little over 2,000 residents. In such a small city there are rarely funds nor manpower available for playgrounds and parks. Because of this, a fundraising campaign, sponsored by the Riverside Beautification Organization (RBO), has been established to improve Riverside Playground.
Along with the RBO, we see a need for a more updated and safe play area.
To aid in the expense of the updates, the RBO has applied for an Alabama Power Foundation grant. We appreciate the efforts of RBO member, Mrs. Pat Yates, who has generously given of her time and expertise in writing and applying for this grant.
We would also like to ask for help from our community with the support of upcoming events. Donation boxes will be placed by the RBO at all community events. These upcoming events include:
- RBO Fall Craft Sale
- City of Riverside Christmas Tree Lighting
- RBO Soup Supper
- RBO Poker Run
The City of Riverside, along with the help of your generous donations and the selfless work of volunteers, is making numerous efforts in the enhancement of the safety and enjoyment of our park patrons.
Completion of the playground project is scheduled for 2019 pending Alabama Power Foundation grant approval and your help.
We appreciate your efforts in supporting the Riverside Playground Project and the RBO.
