Riverview Park

Riverview is a small neighbourhood located on the eastern banks of its namesake, the Rideau River. Situated south east of downtown, its eastern border is marked by St. Laurent Boulevard, where it meets its neighbouring community of Sheffield Glen. Ottawa East is on the opposite side of the river, with the neighbourhoods of Alta Vista to the south. Like much of south-eastern Ottawa, it was once agricultural land belonging to the township of Gloucester until being annexed to the city.

In 1950, the arrival of the CN railway prompted development which flourished during the baby boom. Since then, development has been sporadic and diverse, mixing larger apartment complexes with lower and middle class homes. In recent years, several homogeneous buildings have been erected to serve middle class and senior residents. Thanks to its south-central location, Riverview has become a health care services hub for the city. The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Riverside Hospital, and Ottawa General Hospital can all be found in the vicinity. A vibrant and active community, Riverview Park boasts a strong community association to support schools, businesses, and recreation. This group ensures proper maintenance of public areas, including the extensive green space which complements the breadth of schools found throughout the neighbourhood. These include not only public and catholic schools for all ages, but both elementary and high schools with purely French streams, an alternative education school and a Montessori school. A community centre, several churches and extensive shopping centres round out the amenities in this well established neighbourhood. With its emphasis on health care provision, Riverview is naturally well supplied with Transit. Three stations serve the area: Hurdman, Lycee Claudel and Smyth stations provide convenient access to all corners of Ottawa.
