Proudly connecting you to your river valley
We are a not-for-profit made up of the seven shareholder municipalities that border the North Saskatchewan River in the Edmonton Metropolitan region.
Our goal is to connect one continuous trail system from Devon to Fort Saskatchewan, approximately 100 km. We're about 70% complete.
Trek The Trails
Over 20 years ago a group of volunteers came together with a shared vision - and a shared love for the river valley. That vision grew into a plan of action to transform the river valley into a world-class, integrated, cross-municipality park and trail system. This history set into motion the RVA's work today in helping municipalities fund the design and construction of projects that connect people to this natural wonder.
