Riverview (also known as Riverview Park) is southeast of the downtown adjacent to the Rideau River, its location on which is its namesake. In the 1950s the neighbourhood was primarily built-up to serve the post-war baby boom era. Recent developments are mostly middle-class developments, and also for retired people. Riverview is home to a number of hospitals, thanks to its central location Riverview and to a diversity of schools. Parks in Riverview include Dale Park, Hurdman Park, Balena Park, Riverview Park, Coronation Park and Hutton Park.
