Friday Morning Riverside Walk

Riverside is the first planned community in the United States, designed in 1869 by Frederick Law Olmsted.  The village was incorporated in 1875. The Riverside Landscape Architecture District, an area bounded by 26th St., Harlem and Ogden Aves., the Des Plaines River, and Golf Rd., was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970.

Riverside has some lovely older homes that overlook the Des Plaines River.  There are also several Frank Lloyd Wright homes there.  

We will meet at the Oak Park Library at 9 AM and car pool to Riverside or if you prefer to just meet in Riverside, we will meet at the Riverside Library at 9:30 AM.  When you RSVP, please let us know if you need a ride or will meet at the Riverside Library.

The Riverside Library is at:

1 Burling Road  Riverside, IL
