Riverside's Rick Martin Memorial Park
The past meets the present in a scenic location
October 20, 2022
The Rick Martin Memorial Park (previously Prospect Park) in Riverside is visited by hundreds of folks, both local and tourists, year around. The history of this beautiful play area is somewhat blurry with several possible scenarios.
Helen Weiland came to live in Riverside in 1955 and provided some interesting trivia. Weiland currently takes care of the park, maintaining the restrooms, mowing and taking care of the flowers, as well as providing mosquito abatement measures to assure the comfort of visitors. She has been taking care of the park for 14 years.
