In Partnership, We Succeed


The City of Riverside


The City of Riverside is committed to many opportunities for residents, visitors, artists and organizations to share in our city's cultural expression through the arts.

The City provides support and creates local, regional and national partnerships with Riverside arts and cultural institutions, the Smithsonian Institution, and others.

We are guided by our mission which is to champion and advance Riverside as The City of Arts & Innovation in the broadest economic and social context possible.

Together we all work to provide access to the diversity of art and culture in Riverside!


The City of Riverside Parks and Recreation


The City of Riverside Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department provides innovative recreational experiences and social enrichment opportunities and continues to address the changing needs for people of all ages and cultures, in a variety of safe and attractive parks, landscapes and facilities.
