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.


Welcome to Council: Leah Pyter

Congratulations to Leah Pyter (222 W. Riverglen), who was appointed to the vacated Village Council seat at the Council meeting on August 20th. Leah moved to Riverlea from Chicago 3 1/2 years ago with her two kids and her dogs. She teaches neuroscience at Ohio State, where she runs a research lab that studies how cancer affects brain function. Outside of work, she coaches middle school soccer and volunteers at the Homeless Families Foundation. Welcome to Council, Leah!

…and thanks once again to Josh Schoenberger for his excellent service to Riverlea during his time on Council. Thanks also to the other neighbors who put themselves forward for the position: we hope that you will find other opportunities to get involved in the Village.
