Summers are Sensational at Riverstone

May 10, 2024

Summers were simply made for Riverstone, the 2,000-acre master-planned community just north of Fresno. From inviting neighborhood parks and winding trails, to lively events and celebrations bringing everyone together, Riverstone is the picture-perfect summer haven where families can revel in the sunshine, enjoy active outdoor recreation and experience the joys of an engaged community.

Summer evenings are memorable at The Lodge at Riverstone, which features a resort-style pool, poolside cabanas and a large gathering area around an outdoor firepit.
With an array of amenities inside and out plus an ongoing lineup of activities, The Lodge is a comfortable hangout that many residents call their ‘second living room.’

Central to summertime gathering and fun is The Lodge, Riverstone’s inaugural resort-style community clubhouse. Situated in the heart of the Lodge District residential neighborhood, The Lodge is a one-of-a-kind venue that takes its architectural inspiration from the west’s National Park lodges of yesteryear. The contemporary-agrarian style of The Lodge features open, exposed beams, grand windows for inspired views, and authentic building materials that are permanent and lasting.

The resort-style pool and spa at The Lodge is an amenity that fully embraces the spirit of summer, which also includes a children’s pool and splash pad reserved for Riverstone’s youngest residents as well as stylishly comfortable poolside cabanas where families can simply kick back and relax.

“I can’t think of a better summertime hangout than The Lodge,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones, “and our residents appear to agree with me. It’s so rewarding to see so many of them come together in enjoyment of this special venue day and night…from families unwinding in a poolside cabana, to kids having the time of their lives around the splash pad, to adults enjoying a glass of wine under the stars around the big outdoor firepit.”

Within the expansive interior spaces of The Lodge, residents are free to enjoy an array of exceptional amenities including a Great Room and flexible gathering places with WiFi, a demonstration kitchen, and a state-of-the-art Fitness Center. This innovative, health-forward facility, which was designed by a fitness training expert, offers advanced exercise equipment as well as free weights.

The dog days of summer are enjoyed at Central Bark, Riverstone’s creatively imagined and much-loved dog park. Designed for fido fun and easygoing dog-owner sociability, the park features separate areas for small breeds and big breeds to ensure a safer park-going experience. Guaranteeing 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.

Riverstone also offers many other family-centric parks including individualized parks featured in all eight neighborhoods. Some of the most noteworthy include Wathen Castanos’ Fireside Park overlooking a greenbelt of olive trees with a clear view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and Woodside’s park, which features a beautiful, wide-open grassy area ideal for picnics.

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 private trail network for hiking and biking, 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.
