La Rivière de Corps is an urban commune with beautiful views of the countryside due to the exceptional rural landscape of the Vallée de la Vienne, which runs from west to east through the commune. It is a real pleasure to make the most of this wonderful place for a walk which links different communes within the urban area. La Rivière de Corps has numerous sports clubs and leisure activities, schools and shops, making it a great place to live. The attention paid to the quality of the environment has been rewarded with two flowers from the Villes et Villages Fleuris organisation.
La Rivière de Corps commemorates its history in the First World War memorial. The square column decorated with the victory palm is located in the Mairie garden. In Avenue du Général Leclerc, between numbers 45 and 47 of the road to Sens, there is a monument to those who were shot on 25 August 1944 when the town was liberated.
