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.
