Riverview Real Estate & Community Guide
Enjoy the sights in Riverview, a new community in Cochrane’s south. No matter if you commute to the city for work, or stay in Cochrane, it’s an ideal location for families to live the good life. Cochrane is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, but it still maintains its quaint, western-themed identity, as well as a gathering place for adventure activities. Walk downtown for the perfect ice cream cone, or visit the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site and explore history. Cochrane recently launched its Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit (COLT) system to provide public transportation to make the town even more accessible to its residents.
So Much to Love in Riverview
Who wouldn’t want to live in such close proximity to the beautiful Bow River? Riverview is in the sweet spot between the quiet of nature, and the friendly bustle of Cochrane’s downtown. Be close to the action at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre, or enjoy a weekend afternoon drinking a local beer after a trek to the mountains. It’s all here at Riverview.
This community has easy access to a preschool and a secondary school and tons of amenities. Cochrane schools are part of the Rocky View School Division, as well as the Calgary Catholic School District. If home schooling is more appealing, there is an active network called Cochrane Home Educators. There is a total of eight elementary schools that service Cochrane, with one providing French immersion, two Catholic, and one francophone school. There is a middle school that provides French immersion and three high schools. Of those three, one school continues with French immersion, and one is part of the Catholic division. Within these schools, there is programming for religious instruction as well.
