  Riverside electoral ward of Cardiff

Riverside (Welsh: Glan yr Afon) is an inner-city southern area of Cardiff, capital of Wales. Riverside is also the name of the electoral ward, which can be split into two very different parts, Riverside and Pontcanna. These two areas have noticeably different demographics and are divided by Cowbridge Road East, with Pontcanna located to the north.

Riverside-proper, south of Cowbridge Road East, consists mainly of terraced houses and is a focus for much of the city's ethnic minority population, with sizeable communities of Bangladeshis, Sikh and Chinese, particularly around Tudor Street which has a strongly ethnic feel to it.

Riverside has a number of Chinese, Halal, Indian, and West Indian shops selling a range of foods. The Riverside Community Market Association (RCMA)s Riverside Farmers Market began in November 1998 as the Riverside Real Food Market, a weekly Sunday farmers' market on the Fitzhamon Embankment. Other signs of regeneration include the area becoming the focus for Cardiff's rapidly expanding budget accommodation with three backpacking hostels in close proximity to each other.

Pontcanna on the other hand, is a very well to do area of wide tree-lined streets and large houses. It is a gentrified "media Village" with a cafe culture-lifestyle centred around Pontcanna Street and Cathedral Road. It is interesting demographically due to both its large English born population and large Welsh language speaking political and media class.

Sophia Gardens is home to the Glamorgan County Cricket Club, and the Sport Wales National Centre.
