Welcome to Riverlea!

Incorporated in 1939, the Village of Riverlea is a quiet, leafy residential community of just over 600 people, situated between High Street and the Olentangy River just north of Columbus. We are a fifteen minute drive from the Ohio State University campus and a twenty minute drive from downtown Columbus. It’s a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and village green of downtown Worthington, and a short ride to the scenic Olentangy bike trail. Our children attend Evening Street Elementary School, Kilbourne Middle School, and Thomas Worthington High School in the Worthington school district. All three schools are located within a mile of the Village.


Resident updates


Riverlea will hold its annual luminaries event on Sunday, December 18 (rain/snow date December 21). Bags and candles will be distributed between December 12 and 16. Please plan to take a stroll through the Village to enjoy what promises to be a beautiful and joyful evening. Santa will be making an appearance. Many thanks to Kathy McClintock and the Social Committee for organizing, and happy holidays!
