In 1994, Riverside merged with the surrounding Mad River Township. This merger resulted in the creation of several separated sections of the city in parts of the township that had experienced annexations by Dayton, Huber Heights, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. There are a total of six disconnected sections of the city. The southernmost section comprises four smaller sections that are attached solely by annexed roadways and not surrounding properties.

The city is adjacent to Dayton, Kettering, Huber Heights, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and a small part of Harrison Township in Montgomery County. The city of Beavercreek, Bath Township and Beavercreek Township in Greene County border Riverside on the east.
