I have lived in Riverside for the last 7+ years! It is a small town and I love it for its diversity. Although it is small it is well mixed with different people and nationalities. To still see a small town with such a great mixture allows me to think that every place isn't bad. The township does events for many holidays, etc. I would love to see more events for the children.

Small town with a strong sense of community. Some parts of town are subjectively nice; others appear run-down. Some would say it's a great town while others dislike it as the really small town feel is understandably not for them. The only public high school in town, Riverside High School, is, in my opinion, a 2/5.
I like living in the small town community. We all work to help each other out in times of need. Also it is close to the Delaware River so if you like boating, fishing or key skiing it is a good place.
