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.


Riverlea Luminaries

Riverlea will be holding its second annual evening of candles, cocoa and caroling on Sunday, December 15 (rain/snow date December 22). Bags and candles will be distributed to all homes in the Village during the preceding week, and neighbors will be asked to light their luminaries and place them on the curbs at 6:30 on the 15th (instructions will be included with the distributed materials for neighbors who aren’t able to place their own luminaries). We’ll then walk over to the Circle Park on Riverglen Drive for cocoa and treats, followed by caroling. We’ll also be raising money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Please join us for what promises to be a beautiful and joyful event!

Many thanks to Council President Kathy McClintock and the Social Committee for organizing this event. Please contact Kathy or another member of the committee if you would like to get involved.
