Saskatoon Riversdale is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, Canada. It was held by two Premiers of Saskatchewan from 1991 to 2007--Roy Romanow and Lorne Calvert. It is currently occupied by Danielle Chartier of the New Democratic Party of Saskatchewan.

The constituency was one of five created for the city of Saskatoon when the former multi-member constituency of Saskatoon City was abolished prior to the 1967 general election. Of those five ridings, Saskatoon Riversdale is the only one to have existed continuously without renaming.

It contains Riversdale, a subdivision of the Core Neighbourhoods Suburban Development Area in Saskatoon.

The riding has historically been an NDP stronghold; it has been in NDP hands for all but one term of its existence.
