The Outdoors Are In at Riverstone
August 13, 2021
There’s no denying that the new homes of Riverstone are comfortable, stylish havens ideal for gathering and relaxing with family and friends. But with the community’s ever-growing list of amenities, resident families are finding plenty of reasons to head outdoors to play.
A total of five family-oriented parks can now be enjoyed at Riverstone, and all are situated just a short walk away from the community’s wide-ranging collections of homes. With everything from play structures, barbecue areas and shaded picnic benches to Bocce Ball, pickle ball courts and even an enclosed mini soccer field, the series of parks continues to be one of the most-loved things about Riverstone life—especially for today’s young families.
“We have a number of objectives here at Riverstone, and one of the most important is to create a community that empowers residents to be active in the great outdoors,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “Whether it’s taking a morning run, going swimming at The Lodge, riding bikes or just exploring nature, we’ve designed Riverstone with an abundance of amenities that invites families to take part in these kinds of wholesome and healthful outdoor experiences.”
Extensive planning and design work continues for Riverstone’s exciting future network of hiking and biking trails, which is a highly anticipated offering that has been many years in the making. An exclusive amenity available only to Riverstone residents and accessible via a special key fob, the private trails are envisioned 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. A series of engaging outposts is being considered as a possible amenity along the trails, which could offer places for a workout, a picnic, or just a spot to relax while connecting to the natural soulfulness of the land.
The trails present the perfect opportunity for residents to rent Riverstone bikes from the community’s Gear Barn and go cruising through the beautiful farmland located just beyond home. Situated within The Lodge community clubhouse, the Gear Barn—a unique outfitters amenity exclusively for residents—offers a rental program where families can get the equipment and information they need for a wide variety of on- and off-site adventures—everything from kayaking, camping and fishing to hiking and Sierra snow skiing.
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 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.
