Riverbend is a highly desirable community located in Southwest Edmonton bordering the North Saskatchewan River. It is a mature community, perfect for both young and older families, professionals, and really anyone who wants to be out of the hustle and bustle of more central locations while remaining a short commute from places like Downtown, U of A, Whyte Ave, and West Edmonton Mall. Riverbend is a great community if you enjoy jogging, biking, walking, or just spending time outside. It is a community full of mature trees and is just a short walk to Edmonton’s world famous River Valley trail system. Riverbend is actually two different areas: “Old Riverbend” and “New Riverbend.” New Riverbend is the more southern portion of the community and homes here are a little newer (1990’s built). Old Riverbend is the northern half of the community and is a little more mature as homes in this area were built in the 1970’s. In either area, the beauty of the parks and homes are easy to appreciate. It is a community that cannot be described as “cookie cutter,” as many of the homes are quite unique.
Some of the reasons why Riverbend is such a fantastic community for families are the schools, recreation facilities, and the community league. There are many fantastic ways to keep the little ones busy.
