Riverview is a beautiful, mature neighbourhood located in the central-southeast portion of Winnipeg. Its central location makes this area desirable for working professionals due to its proximity to downtown, and major hospitals.  The mature community with ample green spaces, tree-canopied streets, and great mom-and-pop shops is a sought-after haven for families.  Although be weary, this is one of the tougher neighbourhoods to get into!



Unfortunately, Riverview can be one of the most competitive neighbourhoods in Winnipeg to buy into, mostly due to limited inventory and the competition as a result. Some of the first homes in the area were built prior to 1946, but the majority of construction occurred before the 1960s. Riverview consists of single-family attached and detached homes, with some multifamily dwellings located near Osborne Street. As you stroll down these tree-lined streets, you can't help but notice the character and charm this area has to offer.

Homes are highly sought-after in this community, with price points ranging from around $200,000 to around $1 million for more substantial, sometimes newer construction homes. The average home sells for around $400,000, although you can find some fixer-uppers for less. Condominiums range in price from around $100,000 to $300,000.

Riverview is a very popular area for investors, as it attracts a good deal of tenants that are young professionals looking for affordable living in a safe area with a quick commute to their downtown workplaces.


Riverview is part of the Winnipeg School Division. Children following the English track will start elementary school at École Riverview School from Kindergarten to Grade Six.

" I believe Riverview is very community minded. We have an extremely strong community club where volunteers are plowing the park here so that we can cross-country ski. We have access to the river. We're in the city center, but it feels like we're in a park. "

"I like living in Riverview because it is a very family friendly community and we have a very close knit community that looks after each other and shovels the sidewalks for each other and meets up to go for walks together. Good neighbours." 

" One of my favorite things is having enough space to throw a frisbee for my dog in the park or on the river in winter. I love that" 

" It's fairly close to downtown and it has a nice park to go walk in."
