Families Enjoy Plenty of Parks at Riverstone
April 15, 2018
Playtime is a top priority at Madera County’s 2,000-acre Riverstone master-planned community. Within Riverstone’s inaugural residential neighborhood, the Lodge District, families are already enjoying two parks—and three more family parks are on the way. All five parks are located conveniently close to Riverstone’s first collections of stylish, innovative new homes that are now selling.
“Having fun and being active outdoors is so important for families,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “In designing our community, we wanted to make sure we gave today’s families many reasons to unplug from their mobile devices and head outside to play. After all, America’s greatest generation was told to play outside and not come in until dinnertime—we’re creating that same dynamic at Riverstone with these kinds of nostalgic, outdoor environments where kids can have fun and stay active until the sun goes down.”
Adventure Park, now open at Riverstone, is an active play area with spaces designed for children from ages two and up. The park features play structures, table tennis, climbing boulders and the fun of three different slides—all with a soft, spongy ground to safely cushion youngsters’ falls.
Designed for more relaxing, adult-sized fun is Riverstone’s Garden Park, with barbecue areas, bocce ball, shade structures and a large communal table ideal for outdoor dining.
The three planned additional parks coming to Riverstone’s Lodge District residential neighborhood include Pavilion Park, which will open soon and feature play equipment, tire swings and an enclosed mini field for soccer and field hockey. Construction will be starting soon for Expedition Park, which is planned to offer a play structure, ping pong, community tables and barbecue areas; and Tournament Park, which is expected to include an outdoor shade structure, two pickle ball courts and a creative, street-like play area where kids can safely ride bikes.
Just a short ways away from the parks, and anchored right in the heart of the Lodge District, is “The Lodge” itself, a creatively envisioned, resort-style community clubhouse that’s in a class all by itself.
Exuding a contemporary-agrarian architectural style, The Lodge offers an array of exceptional amenities. Within its expansive interior spaces, residents are free to enjoy a Great Room and flexible gathering places with WiFi, a demonstration kitchen, and a state-of-the-art Fitness Center with advanced exercise equipment. Just outside, The Lodge features a resort-style pool and spa with poolside cabanas, a children’s pool, an outdoor bar with firepit conversation areas, a community garden and a Gear Barn outfitter’s cabin featuring a variety of gear available for homeowners’ on- and off-site adventures. In addition, a Concierge is stationed in The Lodge to plan community-wide events and smaller gatherings.
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 dog park, a community farm, historic olive and citrus groves, a sustainable water supply, and on-site schools.

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