Central Bark Dog Park Opening at Riverstone
February 24, 2019
Maybe it’s their adorable puppy faces, their never-ending loyalty or just the way they make us smile that explains why dogs occupy so many American hearts and homes. Whichever particular breed of man’s best friend you prefer, every dog is more than welcome at the 2,000-acre Madera County master-planned community of Riverstone.
“Dogs are definitely valuable members of today’s families, so we go to great lengths to make them feel right at home,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “Our brand-new dog park—we call it Central Bark—is a great place to head outdoors, let your dog have a little fun and get some exercise, and enjoy the camaraderie of other dog-loving residents.”
The abundance of amenities at Central Bark ensures all sorts of tail-wagging fun. The park features trees, creative dog fountains and open-space areas ideal for running, frolicking and disc catching. Unlike other dog parks, Central Bark features separate areas for small dogs and big dogs, both with their own separate, gated entry. The unique design ensures that both the dogs and their owners are able to enjoy a better, safer park-going experience.
Thematic neighborhood parks are a recurring theme at Riverstone, which means that family playtime is always an easy proposition. Homeowner families are enjoying three parks conveniently close to home within Riverstone’s Lodge District residential neighborhood—and two more parks (Tournament Park and Expedition Park) are on the way.
For even more outdoor fun, the community’s network of hiking and biking trails are anticipated to open soon, which 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.
“In our design of Riverstone, we were very mindful of developing amenities that encourage people to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by heading outdoors for fun,” added Jones. “Whether it’s walking to a park or enjoying a family bike ride along our future trails, it’s all about engaging in a more active and healthier way of life.”
Riverstone’s unique way of life that extends far beyond the four walls of a home may have played a part in the community’s recent winning of the CVLUX 2019 Luxury Award for Community of the Year. Determined by a vote of the general public, the prestigious accolade honors only the best of the best in the Central Valley. The recent win comes on the heels of last year’s most notable achievement for Riverstone: the coveted Gold Award for 2018 Best Master-Planned Community of The Year awarded by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
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, as well as commercial and mixed-use space including office, service and retail. Amenities at Riverstone are anticipated to include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, multiple community clubhouses, hiking and biking trails, a 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.

The freshwater lake eight miles from Riverstone is full of fish and ready. There’s also Millerton Lake, just 13 miles away. Happy angling!
