 Watch the District H Spotlight!

It's home to Riverbend Community League within the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues! 

It's where neighbours choose to share and collaborate, instead of compete. Our people-power has realized many events, even a sports centre for all ages and abilities. 




 A message from our Neighbourhood Watch rep, Barb:

We can now petition for more Edmonton Neighbourhood Watch signs virtually for our neighbourhoods.

Please email your first & last name to Barb at barb.scott@weselledmonton.com
and include your neighbourhood sign in the subject line.

She needs 25 emails for one sign. Thank you neighbours!

Example subject line: "Brander Gardens Sign"




Tennis and Pickleball in Riverbend

The Riverbend Community League recognizes that our courts are in disrepair. We are actively trying to organize the rebuild of these courts. We are and have been looking for champions of this cause in the community, and any interested parties can reach out to us at info@riverbendonline.ca. So far, our league has worked with the City of Edmonton to address and tackle the problem trees whose roots broke up the court surface. This was a multi-year endeavour. We also have arranged for the cost analysis of redoing the courts. We need help fundraising and administering the court rebuild and welcome your support!


 Click here for some tangible ways you can benefit from Community League Membership. 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the community league buildings are closed. The best way to reach us will be by email (info@riverbendonline.ca), but you can also leave messages on our voicemail at 780-437-7108.





An assessment has been done of the Riverbend Community League courts. It has been determined that due to further erosion of the entire court surface, both the tennis and pickleball courts must be permanently closed in the interest of safety.

Riverbend Community League

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.
