Riverdale Edmonton Homes For Sale
Someone made a mistake in the dictionary because right there, next to the definition of the word “picturesque,” should be a photo of Riverdale, Edmonton. Located east of downtown, the North Saskatchewan River wraps around it, offering gorgeous scenery and plenty of opportunities to get into the outdoors. If you’re looking for a new home and a community that offers all the perks of city living but a small-town vibe, look at the homes for sale in Riverdale, Edmonton.
It’s hard to believe today, but Riverdale was home to one of Edmonton’s earliest industrial areas. And, it’s a good thing it was because the brick and lumber yards and the coal mines helped establish a robust economy that remains to this day.
About 25 percent of the housing stock in Riverdale was built pre-1946, so if it’s a vintage home you seek, you may just find it here. You’ll also find homes for sale in Riverdale that sit on multiple acres, view properties and even condos and duplexes. Prices of homes for sale in Riverdale typically start at more than $500,000.

The neighborhood is home to Riverdale School, with a very active parent community. After elementary school, area public school students attend Spruce Avenue School (about 10 minutes north of Riverdale) and then Victoria High.

Buy a home in Riverdale and you’ll be in close proximity to a number of parks. Louise McKinney Riverfront Park is a local favorite. Located south of the Shaw Conference Centre, it serves as a gateway of sorts to the trails that wind throughout the city. With nearly 13 acres of land, it’s the ideal place for a picnic with a view of the river.
Just east of Louise McKinney you’ll find Riverdale Park, with a playground, paved trails and a rink house. Also nearby is Dawson Park where you and your pooch can enjoy the off-leash dog area, walk or bicycle on the trails or you can launch your boat.
Golf? The Riverside Golf Club is a quick 10 minutes’ northeast of Riverdale. Our favorite thing to do in Riverdale, though, is a summer Saturday morning spent shopping at the 104 Street farmer’s market.
