Riverbend is an executive community in South Edmonton comprised of nine residential neighbourhoods. The community offers a wide variety of property ranging from sprawling bungalows and expansive multi-story homes, to junior executive homes and large estate properties. True to its name, Riverbend real estate follows the North Saskatchewan River as it enters the south side of the city.
The Riverbend real estate market offers a unique mixture of upgraded mature homes and newly completed properties. Homes in the area show off gorgeous visuals of the River Valley and Edmonton skyline. The exterior design shows off elements of stone, vinyl, and stucco situated on top of a base of concrete with wood paneling. Combine all of the exceptional elements with the professional landscaping found outside of the home and it is not hard to understand why houses for sale in Riverbend are immensely popular.
On the inside, previous owners have created sanctuaries with different styles of hardwood flooring, well-appointed kitchens with granite or quartz countertops, and enough space to house a proper walk-in pantry. Bathrooms are laden in ceramic tile flooring, while bedrooms contain fresh new carpeting.

Ramsey Park - Has a great playground with a cook shelter, a skateboard park, multiple soccer fields, and hosts an Art in the Park Festival and a Winter Family event.
