Riverdale is one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Whitehorse because it’s so close to Downtown. Every other neighbourhood is located on top of the river valley requiring you to traverse 2 Mile Hill or Robert Service Way. Most of the homes in Riverdale were built in the late ‘60s and ‘70s on larger lots with room for RV parking, mature trees and private outlooks. As you tour Riverdale, you will notice many of the homes are renovated and in pristine condition.
Locals love the Millennium Trail and on weekends its the place to sip a coffee or go for a run. The entire trail is 4.5 km long and the highlight is the suspension bridge over the Yukon River.
