The Riverside Neighborhood Association is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization committed to a simple mission: we are neighbors helping neighbors to make our community the best it can be.
Most important, we invite you to join us. Your special talents, interests, knowhow, or passion can help us capture opportunities and meet the everyday challenges of life in our beautiful neighborhood.
In addition to this website, connect with us on Facebook and look for us on your favorite social media platform. Join our mailing list, take part in our monthly community meetings, or reach out and volunteer with one of our social events or, perhaps, to help us improve our community.
Our concerts return to Riverside Park this summer and we again hosted these events thanks to our friends at Domino Sugar! Beer and wine sales benefit RNA. Food by Smoking Swine serving BBQ faves, sweet treats from Miss Twist, and more.

Riverside Neighborhood Association, several other stakeholder organizations throughout Baltimore City, and the Baltimore City Planning Commission ARE OPPOSED to Council Bill #20-0570. We urge City residents to contact Council President Brandon Scott and their District Council Member to voice opposition before the bill goes to vote on October 14. Not only will this be an eyesore for our community and others that border the railways and I-95, but it will also contribute to the visual pollution and urban blight that already plague our City. Read a comprehensive Baltimore Brew article on the topic here.

The SoBo Pop-Up pool is bringing some big-time love to the Riverside Park Pool in summer 2019. Through color, furniture, landscaping, and shade, we are working to create a vibrant, lively, and fun community hub for everyone to cool off in the summertime. The improvements will be permanent, ensuring that the community can enjoy these changes for many years to come.
Thanks to the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, we have been generously funded for furniture, shade, and supplies. But we are not done yet! Through your support, you will enable us to bring public art and programming to further enliven this community treasure. What does this mean? A welcoming mural in the front of the building, to greet visitors of the pool and park. Activities and events to bring the community together, with the potential of long-term programming, such as fitness and swim classes.
