Village of Riverton

Formerly the site of Aboriginal hunting grounds, Riverton was established by Icelandic settlers in 1876. Several other ethnic groups, including Ukrainian, German, Mennonite, Hungarian and Polish immigrants settled here years later, enriching and expanding Riverton's cultural heritage.

Some of the key sites to see are the Centennial park, Betsey Ramsey Grave, the initial stages of the refurbishing of the CP Railway station and our beautiful walking path that leads you along our scenic river.

The agricultural and fishing industries have traditionally been the basis of the local economy. However, entrepreneurial spirit, literary and sports accomplishments and some of the finest musical entertainers in the Interlake make up a very diversified community. The community spirit in Riverton remains vibrant. Sport fishing, hunting, boating, baseball, curling, hockey, snowmobiling, volleyball, badminton, tap dancing, craft classes, pottery ... it's all here. Residents care about their community and are willing to volunteer time and resources to making Riverton a great place to live.

Stop by and enjoy our community.

We would like you to take a few moments and browse through our village.
