News & Events

Thank you to all volunteers who signed up to bring some fun and color to our community by painting activity stencils on the pathways around our community. Several volunteer teams painted stencils in 4 locations: around the Riverbend Community Centre and Riverbend School, by the Riverbend Rock, by Riverside Mews and in Carburn Park.



Let's be neighbourly & spread our strong community spirit

Neighbour Day started in June 2014 to celebrate the incredible outpouring of support and generosity neighbours demonstrated after the 2013 floods. We want to continue to celebrate one of the things that makes Calgary such a great city — our strong and caring communities. This year, Neighbours Day takes place on Sat, June 19.

New 40km/h speed limit took effect on May 31st

This change will affect the speed limit on both residential and collector roads in neighbourhoods.


Many roads around Riverbend will be affected by this change. Check out street details on the following map online here and as shown on the below.

18th Street Refresh Project Update

Thank you to everyone who responded to our letter and survey that were distributed to those whose fence backs onto the 18th Street. We will be reaching out to all those interested in collaborating soon. In the meantime, we have a few small successes to share:

  • The City of Calgary crew has repaired the broken boards on the east side of 18th Street. Thanks to Evan Spencer from Ward 12 office for accelerating this request.

  • We confirmed with Riverbend Hardware store that they have the Titanic Grey paint in stock. #Supportlocal

  • We were finally able to reach Telus via Twitter and they committed to fixing and repainting their fence that is in a very bad shape

We are currently engaging with Calgary Parks and Roads and will be strategizing on how best to tackle landscaping on 18th Street.

Please reach out if you have any ideas or want to be part of this discussion.

Kids Summer Soccer Program

We partnered with SD Serbia Sports Club Association and Calgary Minor Soccer Association to bring the Kids Summer Soccer Program back to Riverbend!

The program focuses on soccer skills development, will be run by qualified coaches and is available to kids age 5 to 15! Due to changing landscape with Covid19 regulations there may be a delay with the program starting but we remain optimistic that it will be allowed to proceed. See details and register online.

Support our local businesses

Supporting our local businesses, supports our community. It's been encouraging to see businesses innovating their services to pull through this tough time. There are some easy things all of us can do to #supportlocal:

  • Purchase some gift cards for others to use later.

  • Order delivery or takeout from our local restaurants.

  • Post positive reviews online.

  • Spread the word about your positive experience.
