Family-friendly and close to everything, Rivervale is one of Perth’s fastest growing suburbs.
Only five kilometres from Perth CBD, it was established in the 1840s but didn’t take off as a residential area until the 1950s. Today it’s the place to be for young couples and families, with these demographics making up the majority of the residents living there.
Being near Swan River, living in Rivervale lets you make the most of Perth’s summer living.
It’s made for families, with plenty of parks and schools in the area. The suburb is home to outdoor nature areas like Copely Reserve and Wilson Park. Perfect for the littlies, with playgrounds and lots of space to move, these areas are also ideal for your daily jog (or leisurely walk). If you like your exercise a bit more structured there are netball courts at Wilson Park, which is close to the local shops. Need to pick up more than just the basics? Belmont Forum is just a stone’s throw away.
More than half the properties in Rivervale are rented, making it a great place to buy that investment property. It’s also made up predominately of free-standing houses, making the dream of having a family home —with room for the kids, a garden and pets — a reality. Being within the City of Belmont, it has all the municipality has to offer and is close by to other up-and-coming suburbs such as Cloverdale, Kewdale and Lathlain. It might only cover three square kilometres, but Rivervale packs a lot in!
