Bulyea Heights offers more walking trails than any other Riverbend community and with the presence of the Whitemud Creek Ravine, which runs the eastern length of Bulyea Heights, is the a most striking community. Almost every house in Bulyea Heights is owner-occupied with several of these homes touching the edges of the ravines with more walking trails, natural paths for hiking and run off streams from the North Saskatchewan River. Bulyea Heights was named after George Hedley Vicars Bulyea, the first Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta.


Carter Crest is a smaller upper-class Riverbend neighborhood features a combination single-detached housing, construction prior to 1990s. There are only a few roads in this community which swirl and curve to limit the negative effects of traffic, maximize land space and allows its homeowners bigger lots. Carter Crest is within walking distance to the Terwillegar Recreation Center and is named after Robert I. Carter, a Canadian government agent who advised Americans on their immigration prospects in Canada.


Falconer Heights is one of the few Riverbend communities which offer several amenities including medical center, a library, donation center, fast food restaurants, banks, and more located in Riverbend Square. This portion of Riverbend is popular with the aging community and features a fantastic retirement community. There is no school site located within Falconer Heights, but there is a large future school/park site adjacent to Henderson Estates. It was named after James F. Falconer, who was involved in the formation of Edmonton’s Names Advisory Committee in the mid 1950s.


The Henderson Estates is nestled between Old Riverbend and Haddow in Terwillegar Heights bounded by the River Valley which runs the length of the community, providing homeowners with excellent access to our greatest natural asset. Due to the natural beauty and breath-taking views, many of these Henderson Estates  properties will run into the multi-million dollar price range. Henderson Estates is named after Thomas Henderson, a homesteader in the Riverbend area in the late 19th century who imported Italian honey bees to his farm.


When originally built, Ogilvie Ridge was to be a private, elite, gated community until the city decided, Edmonton against any gated communities. It is bordered by Bulyea Heights, Whitemud Creek ravine, and west by the Rabbit Hill. Ogilvie Ridge features a natural topography with an integration of the North Saskatchewan River Valley ravine system defining tis neighborhood. Ogilvie Ridge was named after James H. Ogilvie, a politician, a lawyer, and a veteran of World War I.
