Riverside is a small, neighborhood park that doesn’t have the space square footage-wise of nearby River Woods Park, but has unique features suited for the downtown residents. The park features a newly-build splash pad for kids (SPLASH PAD REVIEW/PICS), and a new amphitheatre. Both of these amenities play a role in key events the city hosts each summer – Friday Night Summer Concerts and the annual Summerfest, a 2-day festival featuring live music, a car show, and more.
In addition to the splash pad and amphitheatre, the small park offers a play structure and playground area (though hardly new), a canoe launch (used in their annual Paddlepalooza event), pavilion area for rent, and various grills and picnic tables that you would find that adorn most area parks. A convenience of the downtown park is the heated restrooms, which are open year-round. There are also a nice trail system that runs along the river. It’s a great place for a summer picnic, especially with the addition of the FREE (for AH residents only) splash pad.

Riverside is FREE to use for both residents and non-residents. The splash pad is FREE for residents with a “proper identification card” (driver’s license, state ID, Auburn Hills Community Center Card. For non-residents, there is a $3 charge. Hardly worth even the $3 if you’re not a citizen of AH.
