Gameday is More Active at Riverstone

February 13, 2022

With the big game finally upon us, football seems to be on just about everyone’s minds this weekend. Fans all throughout the Valley will be rooting for their favorite teams, enjoying great food, good cheer and the simple pleasure of spending time with family and friends.

Just a short walk or bike ride away from Riverstone’s homes, Adventure Park offers play structures, climbing boulders, three different slides and grassy areas for all kinds of kid-sized fun.
With creatively imagined dog fountains and plenty of open-space areas, Central Bark—Riverstone’s dog park—is the go-to place for fur-forward fun and sociability.

But an often-overlooked gameday pastime is heading outside for a little active fun, whether it’s throwing a ball around or enjoying a spirited game of touch football—and for that, there can be no better place than the community of Riverstone.

With a total of five family-friendly parks located practically a short pass away from every home, Riverstone is where parents and their littlest quarterbacks, receivers and place kickers have all the yardage needed for unforgettable memories.

“For many families, watching sports at home has always been a fun tradition, but it’s even more fun if you can break away and actually play the game yourselves,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “This dynamic and often spontaneous form of family togetherness is something we’ve planned for all throughout our community. From parks and trails to our open-air amenities at The Lodge, we’ve designed many ways for Riverstone residents to plug themselves into the outdoors and take part in a more active and healthier way of life.”

Central to this promise is Riverstone’s wide variety of neighborhood parks, including Adventure Park, a family favorite that definitely lives up to its name. Ideal for children, the park features play structures, climbing boulders, a permanent ping pong table and three different slides—all with a soft, spongy ground to safely cushion youngsters’ falls. There’s also a small amphitheater where parents can relax while keeping an eye on their children at play.

A sunny spot to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life, Garden Park features barbecue areas, Bocce Ball, a play structure for children and a large communal table ideal for outdoor dining.

Kids and grown-ups alike enjoy friendly games of soccer on the mini field at Pavilion Park, which also features play equipment, tire swings and shaded picnic benches.

Tournament Park, a favorite among many homeowner families, includes two pickleball courts, an outdoor shade structure, and a creative, street-like play area where kids can safely ride bikes—and Expedition Park offers a play structure, ping pong, community tables and barbecue areas where resident families can easily grill up hot dogs, burgers and other gameday favorites.

Fur-forward fun is always in store at Riverstone’s much-loved dog park, Central Bark—which is the perfect spot for homeowners and dogs to get some exercise and enjoy the camaraderie of other dog-loving residents. Ensuring that tails are always wagging, the park’s amenities include trees, creative dog fountains and open-space areas ideal for running, frolicking and disc catching. The park also features separate areas for small dogs and big dogs, both with their own separate, gated entry—designed to ensure that both the dogs and their owners are able to enjoy a better, safer park-going experience.

Of course, physically active fun is also top-of-mind for the “Sunbirds”, the students of Riverstone’s Stone Creek Elementary school. The innovative 15.5-acre campus features a dynamic sports complex with the highest-quality ball fields and playgrounds.

Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes. Coming soon is the one-million-square-foot Riverwalk mixed-use lifestyle retail destination. Amenities at Riverstone include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, a dog park, a sustainable water supply and The Lodge community clubhouse with resort-style swimming pools, a trainer-designed fitness center, demonstration kitchen, Gear Barn, outdoor gathering spaces with firepits, and ongoing monthly activities such as self-defense classes, book clubs, arts and crafts, specialty meal cooking classes and more. Future amenities are anticipated to include hiking and biking trails, a community farm and much more.
