Staying Fit. It’s Easy at Riverstone.
February 2, 2020
A healthier and more active lifestyle is always a very popular New Year’s resolution, and it’s an easy one to keep for residents at the 2,000-acre Madera County master-planned community of Riverstone. With the community’s ever-growing offering of amenities, the opportunities to stay fit—and look and feel your best in 2020—are literally just beyond your front door.
Riverstone is proud of the completion of five built parks, and all are only a hop, skip and a jump away from the community’s wide-ranging collections of homes.
Adventure Park—an active spot ideal for children—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.
Garden Park is a sunny spot to kick back and enjoy slowing down a bit from often-hectic schedules, with barbecue areas, Bocce Ball and a large communal table ideal for outdoor dining. Kids and grown-ups alike are enjoying 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 pickle ball courts, an outdoor shade structure, and a creative, street-like play area where kids can safely ride bikes.
“It brings us great satisfaction to be able to help families experience the benefits that come with an active and healthier lifestyle,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “Today more than ever, especially with our younger generations, it’s important to turn off the electronic devices from time to time—and head outside to play, or explore, or just get lost in nature. We’ve designed Riverstone with many amenities that allow families to take part in these kinds of wholesome experiences.”
Active family fun is also the order of the day at The Lodge community clubhouse. Here, residents are free to swim laps in the resort-style pool during the warmer seasons or work out in the state-of-the-art Fitness Center year-round—which has been designed by a local fitness trainer and features advanced exercise equipment as well as free weights.
Located within The Lodge is the Gear Barn, which offers a growing rental program exclusively for residents, you’ll find the information you need for a wide variety of on- and off-site adventures—everything from kayaking, camping and fishing to hiking and Sierra snow skiing. Residents can also grab a bike from the Gear Barn to cruise around the community—and along Riverstone’s future network of hiking and biking trails. Anticipated to open soon, and be completed in gradual stages, the trails are planned to eventually link all of Riverstone’s residential districts together. The first trail completed is expected to intersect existing agricultural lands, and extend to an overlook affording picturesque orchard vistas.
Fur-forward fun at Riverstone is routinely found at the community’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.
Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will offer approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes, as well as the one-million-square-foot Riverwalk mixed-use lifestyle retail destination. Amenities at Riverstone include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, multiple community clubhouses, hiking and biking trails, a dog park, a future community farm, historic olive and citrus groves, a sustainable water supply, and on-site schools belonging to the award-winning Golden Valley Unified School District.
