Welcome to the official Website of the Village of Riverdale! Riverdale, Illinois (located on the southeast border of Chicago) offers a small town atmosphere with all the benefits of a metropolitan area. Riverdale instituted a downtown redevelopment plan, which included the rehabilitation and development of commercial buildings on 144th Street. This is now a focal point of Riverdale and headquarters the Village's Administration offices. Riverdale's current population as of the latest Census of 2010 is 13,549. Riverdale is served by a park district that offers programs ranging from arts and crafts to athletics, parks, a library and nearby forest preserves to provide children and adults with many places to relax and have fun.
