The Park was officially named Riverside Park in March of 1897 by the Park Board and was opened to the public on Sep 1898.
3 mile(s) from Pope Park, On November 26th, 1894 Colonel Albert A. Pope provided in his will a gift to the City of 73.0 acres of parkland.

Fourteen acres adjacent to the park were also allocated by the City for juvenile and orphan asylums.

2 mile(s) from Bushnell Park, The Park was one of the earliest public parks in the nation to be planned and built by a municipality as a graceful pastoral landscape rather than a formal European garden or New England square.
