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 Fall Festival

The annual Riverlea Fall Festival will be held at 4:30 pm on Saturday, September 28, in the Circle Park on Riverglen Drive. Grilled hot dogs and fixings will be provided; please bring your own beverages and a side dish to share. For the kids we’ll have a bounce house, pumpkin painting, games, and s’mores. We’ll also have the traditional chili cook-off; please email Patti Heslep by September 21 if you would like to participate. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!
