The Wood Streets neighborhood was devoted to orange groves until 1913, when the Tequesquite Arroyo was filled in, allowing Magnolia Avenue to connect with Downtown. Easy access to Downtown made this area more desirable for residential subdivision. A subdivider named Wood added his monicker to several street names, and so began a series.
The Wood Streets offers perhaps the most cohesive neighborhood design in the City of Riverside. Street and neighborhood designs reflect a traditional aesthetic. The rigid grid layout coupled with narrow widths and beautiful landscaping created a 1920s feel. Homes here reflect the designs of the early part of the 20th century, and nearly all the homes were built before World War II.
Two small sections of high-density residential can be found in the east and western corners and office uses can be found in the south. This neighborhood sits partially on naturally flat landscape and partially upon a manufactured land area. The man-made land bridge that connects this neighborhood with Downtown rises dramatically over, and provides an excellent view of, the Tequesquite Arroyo.
This arroyo dominates the northern-most boundary of the Wood Streets and provides a unique open space for recreation and natural beauty.
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.
