Did you know...

Rabbit Hill Road is Riverbend Community League's southern border.  It runs from Terwillegar Park southeast to Terwillegar Drive. 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 Riverbend Community League's 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.
