An Urban Sprawl: Riverside

Sign in to follow this  


The City of Riverside

Lies on the east shore of the Rose River, several miles north of Downtown Roseville.

Riverside was founded in 111 F.R. and is the third oldest city in the Roseville Metro Area.

The city is home to roughly 30,000 residents and hosts European architecture in order to distinguish itself from Roseville, something that Ramses and Richardston did not do.

Riverside is the only other city in the Roseville Metro Area to host a State University and has brought in many tourists with the beautiful river scenery and the regionally famous Rose Beach.

To the Beach!

Rose Beach is a favorite for Riversidans who want to have some fun on the Rose River.


Downtown Riverside. SR3 brings passengers right into the city's commercial center.


Some of the urban sprawl, the local solar power plant, and the 302 bridge.


R302 runs right into SR3, seen here heading into Roseville. Pictured is the south side of the Riveredge Industrial Park.


North side of the Industrial Park, as well as the West Riverside town center. Currently SR3 is the widest highway in the state with 6 lanes. These lanes were added around 180 F.R. to compensate for the massive traffic going into Roseville. Nowadays traffic is immense in both directions and developers are beginning to think of further expanding the roadway.


North Riverside features the only farms left in the city, as well as the R301 highway, which leads to W. Riverside and the Industrial Park via the 301 Bridge just offscreen.


SR3 is an extremely busy thouroughfare for North Rosevillians and Riversidans alike. The SR3 Bridge is often choked with passengers taking the back way to the South End Industrial Park. Though SR3 has been expanded all the way to the region's industrial center, most commuters still decide to pull off and take a series of back roads. Major traffic revisions were undertaken to aid this problem near the Soees District.


Riverside State University is not currently big enough to host any major sports teams, but has a renown Music and Arts program, led by Professor Amees. The University is located in the thick of the urban sprawl just east of SR3. The locals commonly refer to this area as Easthigh.


The rest of the Easthigh district.


The major area constituting Riverside.


These homes are just south of the Easthigh district, but prefer to call their area Northwood, as they lie on the edge of the Redwood Forest.


The South Riverside Town Center.


The southmost reach of Riverside, here we can see where Riverside borders Roseville and the Soees District.
