From the intro –

“Riverside is a city founded by abolitionists, teetotalers, and other advocates of social justice. Their ambitious hopes for humanity created a place that was forward thinking, artistic, technologically progressive, and different from the status quo. What I put together here was designed to illustrate the achievement of that vision. Driving it is an economy that came into its own by creating and sustaining a citrus industry with the navel orange as its cornerstone.

In Riverside, we love our open spaces and our military. It shaped the community, which is why you should stop at the Riverside National Cemetery to experience the memorials or attend the 4th of July Concert for Heroes. It’s why we have the largest urban open space set inside city limits west of the Mississippi at Sycamore Canyon. It’s why we have a vast, protected greenbelt (Victoria Avenue) that hosts food, drivers, and tens of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts each year. It’s why we hold an annual Military Picnic that brings in nearly as many volunteers as it does service members!”
