Inscription. Welcome to the Town of Riverdale Park

Formally incorporated in 1920, the Town of Riverdale Park derives its name from historic Riversdale Plantation. Riversdale Mansion still stands today, surrounded by the community that grew up around it.

A visit to Riverdale Park is a delightful journey through Maryland History. Town Center, the historic business district, features shops and attractions including a replica of a vintage B&O train station.

In addition to Riversdale Mansion, several homes are listed on the Maryland Historical Trust's Register of Historic Places.
