Edmonton Riverview is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, Canada.

Edmonton Riverview was created prior to the 1997 election and was includes re-distributed areas of the Edmonton Glenora, Edmonton Strathcona, and Edmonton Whitemud ridings. The riding boundaries follow the North Saskatchewan River and Stony Plain Road along the northern border, 109th, 111th and 112th Streets to the east, Whitemud Drive to the south, and Blackmud Creek and 158th, 159th and 163rd Streets to the west. The riding also includes the University of Alberta and the Grant MacEwan College Centre for Arts.

In the 1997 election, Edmonton Riverview elected Liberal Linda Sloan as its first MLA. Sloan defeated Progressive Conservative Gwen Harris by over 900 votes. Sloan declined to seek re-election in 2001.

The 2001 election saw Liberal candidate and best-selling author Kevin Taft run against Progressive Conservative candidate and former Edmonton City Councillor Wendy Kinsella. Though many pundits believed this would be a close race, Taft was elected taking 49% of the popular vote.

In the 2004 election, Taft, then the Leader of the Alberta Liberals faced Progressive Conservative Fred Horne and NDP candidate Donna Martyn. On election night, Taft was easily re-elected taking 65% of the popular vote.
