We are a not-for-profit organization made up of the seven shareholder municipalities that border the North Saskatchewan River in the Edmonton Metropolitan region.

Our goal is to develop a world-class continuous and connected trail system along the North Saskatchewan River Valley from Devon to Fort Saskatchewan, and in doing so, improve quality of life through access and enjoyment of the River Valley.



OUR STORY


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.
