Neighborhood feel

Located near the West Side, the Riverside neighborhood has a feel and character all its own. Riverside Park, the focal point of this charming neighborhood, is as much a source of Siouxland enjoyment now as it did back during the turn of the 20th century, when its fun included a roller coaster, racing tracks, and fairgrounds.

Riverside has a deep and thoughtful history, as much as any historic neighborhood along the banks of the lazy Big Sioux River could claim. Riverside is also aptly named, as it is bordered on three sides by the Big Sioux.


type of homes

Given that many of Riverside's homes were built in the 1940s, residents here enjoy homes with small, but efficient footprints, typically ranging from two to four bedrooms and one or two bathrooms. Small yards and cozy square footages mean a lower cost of living, and plenty of low-maintenance free time. Life in Riverside is meant to be spent outdoors, and it's easily done with the river and parks in such close proximity. 


within a 5 minute Drive

When the work week is done, errands are easy to tackle with stores, gas stations, and grocery stores within a stone's throw of your home.


within a 10-15 MINUTE drive

The beauty of Riverside isn't just its scenery, it's also its proximity to major highways and access roads. Interstate 29, just south of the neighborhood, is your artery to everywhere, from Downtown Sioux City to South Sioux City to Omaha and Sioux Falls. When it's time to roam away from home, rest assured, you don't have to go far to find entertainment, shopping, or the open road.



Home of the Sioux City Community Theater, Riverside serves as Sioux City's landmark for local talent and entertainment. From Riverside Days to lazy days at the park, Riverside is a great place to stretch your legs and sink some roots.
