In The Heart of the River Valley, Steps to Downtown.

Riverdale is one of Edmonton’s most picturesque communities. It is a diverse river valley neighbourhood located just east of Edmonton’s downtown center. The community is bordered by the North Saskatchewan River and surrounded by the cliffs of the river valley. Because of this location Riverdale remains distinct and retains its identity as a separate and unified community. Riverdale has been able to maintain much of its original charm and small town feel; where community pride and spirit run strong.
