The Riverbend Community League is the Heart of old Riverbend, representing the communities of Brander Gardens, Brookside, Ramsay Heights and Rhatigan Ridge.
E-petition for Terwillegar Drive
It’s an honour to be able to sponsor e-petition E-1776 in support of making Terwillegar Drive an immediate funding priority of the Federal Government. Recently, we saw 50th Street prioritized in Edmonton by Infrastructure local Minister Amarjeet Sohi.
We can’t let this happen again.
Please sign our E-Petition created by community volunteer Markus Muhs to draw attention to the needs of our area. Feel free to share with many friends as we bring this to National attention: https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-1776
If you support Matt in his fight to raise awareness of our community in Ottawa, please help us continue as we head closer to the next election by donating what you can here: https://www.edmriverbend.com/donate

Tennis Playing Opportunity
While the Riverbend courts are now closed, Brookview has graciously offered all current Riverbend Community League members the opportunity to play on their courts. With the purchase of an associate membership (20$), you have full access! The TRAC office at the Terwillegar Recreation Centre has these for sale if you are interested.
RIVERBEND TENNIS and PICKLEBALL COURTS are now
With the snow now gone, an assessment was done of the Riverbend Community League courts. It has been determined that due to further erosion of the entire court surface this past winter season, both the tennis and pickleball courts must be permanently closed in the interest of safety.
We are building a capital plan and determining where the courts fit in terms of priority and community need. If you would like to be involved in this process or perhaps with the court refurbishment (when we get there), please contact us at email@example.com.
for the Edmonton Tool Library.
For current RCL members, you can now borrow tools, much like books, at no cost.

Riverbend Community League
Riverbend Community League is comprised of four unique neighbourhoods. Over the next few months, historical naming of the four areas that comprise Riverbend Community League will come to life. The names of parks, streets, and boundaries will be told. This will help us understand what it used to be like to live at places like Ramsay Park, Brookside community, etc.
Please read on and enjoy!
Rabbit Hill Road is our southern border.
It runs from Terwillegar Park southeast to Terwillegar Drive.
Did you know that early settlers, dating from the end of the 19th century, named the road that runs through this area Rabbit Hill. There are prominent hills in the area and wild rabbits were abundant. The Rabbit Hill School District was established in 1895. The name became official in 1979.
Terwillegar Drive is our eastern border. It runs from north of the exit on the Whitemud Drive, south to the intersection of Rabbit Hill Road.
Dr. Norman L. Terwillegar (1887-1948) was a pioneer surgeon and general practitioner who owned property in this area for a number of years. He practiced in Edmonton from 1912 to 1947 and for over 35 years was on staff at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Terwillegar served as president of the Edmonton Academy of Medicine and the Alberta Division of the Canadian Medical Association.
Information is gathered from the book ‘Naming Edmonton: from Ada to Zoie’.
It was developed and compiled by Historic Sited Committee, Edmonton Historical Board.
