It is 473 metres above sea level, and is entirely encircled by the Rural Municipality of Daly in the Westman Region. Agriculture, Health and related businesses provide economics for the community and area. The local schools fall under the Rolling River School Division, with a Nursery School, Rivers Elementary school, and Rivers Collegiate Institute. New playground equipment was installed in 2010 at the Rivers Elementary School and is put to good use by the whole community. The high school is a "Pay It Forward" school and works on programs to do just that. For decades Rivers Collegiate has been praised for its outstanding sports programs, including volleyball, basketball, and baseball. Nearby is Lake Wahtopanah. This lake is a part of the Rivers Provincial Park and provides good fishing both summer and winter. There are many campsites to be rented and walking trails, miniature golf or a delicious ice cream help pass those summer vacation days. Depending on the season, you will see a variety of users on the lake from swimming, waterskiing, sailing, to snowmobiling and ice fishing. There are permanent cottages and homes on both sides of the lake. With its length of 13 km, there is room for everyone.
