One of the three distinguished park neighbourhoods, Riverside Park continues to be one of most desirable neighbourhoods for first time Buyers and Retiree’s. With 1950’s and 60’s brick bungalows dominating this neighbourhood, mature trees tower over 60 ft lots. Riverside Park is the most utilized park in the City and features the famous Floral Clock and Rock Gardens; a fully accessible children’s playground; an outdoor concert shell; an antique carousel; pedal boats; miniature train; a sand beach area; trails along the river front; 3 baseball diamonds; and a scaled model of the first house built in Guelph by John Galt. Many seasonal events are hosted here including the multicultural festival, Canada Day fireworks, Ribfest and Sparkles in the Park. Although this neighbourhood had one of the highest sale prices in the City so far this year, it has had the most number of homes sell close to asking or below.
