A Tour of Riverside

A Tour of Riverside

Many come from far and wide
To take a tour of Riverside
So I of course will be your guide
Please come with me, let’s look inside.
First let’s go to the Arcade
Where the four seasons are displayed
Historical houses are such fun
I know because I live in one.
The water tower with its crown
It’s the symbol of our town
Before you leave by cars and planes
Let’s take a look at the Des Plaines
If you ask why Riverside’s our name
The Des Plaines River is to blame
Leave or stay as it may be
But spread the word to all you see
The playful birds that fly and sing
The Swinging Bridge that doesn’t swing
Omsted had it all in mind
When he made our town’s design.
