Housing in Riverside's Northside
neighborhood, one of the oldest areas in the city, includes post-World War II tracts, cozy bungalows, mid-century apartment buildings, gated communities and even a few working ranches. College students attending the University
of California, Riverside just two miles southeast of Northside appreciate the lower cost of living when compared to surrounding areas.
Thanks to the sunny weather, families can take advantage of Northside's amazing parks all year round. Head to Reid Park to play on every sort of sports court, or join the adult rugby team, the Ballet Folklorico group, or the Polynesian dance team. Youth soccer fans delight in the Ab Brown Soccer Complex, which features more than two dozen soccer fields of all sizes to cover every age, and train buffs love the miniature steam engines running at Hunter Park.
