Wood Streets, Riverside
Wood Streets offers perhaps the most cohesive neighborhood design to be found in the City of Riverside. Street and neighborhood designs reflect a very traditional aesthetic. The rigid grid layout of the community streets, coupled with their narrow width and beautiful landscaping, perpetuate a 1920’s neighborhood character. The homes of this neighborhood reflect the designs of the early part of this century and nearly all the homes were built prior to World War Two. A tour of this area can quickly demonstrate the remarkable variety, and beauty, of architectural styles in use at that time.
This region has a strong sense of community and a tradition of home ownership. This tradition has remained strong and most of the homes in this area are owned rather than rented.
