Visitors come from far and wide to see the next generation of potential Olympic athletes begin their aquatics careers in Riverside at prestigious USA Diving and AAU Diving events.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS As the home of 60,000 college students, Riverside also boasts four competitive collegiate sports programs with hundreds of student athletes competing in basketball, track and field, soccer, baseball, softball, football, swimming, and other highly competitive sports. PARKS Riverside’s vast network of parks has never looked more inviting. Andulka, Orange Terrace, Shamel, Arlington Heights Sports Park, Ryan Bonamino Park, and others provide plenty of space and top-notch facilities for baseball, softball, soccer, and basketball. However, the true gem of Riverside’s outdoor spaces is Fairmount Park where residents and visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the lake, feeding the ducks or fishing, and attending lively outdoor summer concerts. Inside the beautiful and serene Fairmount Park sits a newly-remodeled nine-hole golf course suited for the experienced golfer or anyone new to the game. YOUTH SPORTS On any weekend, visitors heading to the Ab Brown Sports Complex will find hundreds of kids participating in dribbling soccer balls across 56 acres of fields as their families cheer them on from the sidelines. GOLF Golfers enjoy the several challenging and scenic golf courses located within the city. The Victoria Club is located in the center of Riverside and is one of the oldest clubs in Southern California. They can also visit several of Riverside’s finest courses at Indian Hills Golf Club, Jurupa Hills Country Club, Canyon Crest Country Club, or the General Old Golf Course located near March Air Reserve Base.
