Riverstone: A Year of Heartfelt Thanks
December 13, 2020
For most everyone, 2020 will go down as a year to remember. Many months ago during the beginning of the evolving COVID-19 crisis, our normal routines became day-to-day challenges. Although uncertainty was felt by all, the community of Riverstone, along with its many resident families, managed to stay supportive and optimistic while spreading a little hope and kindness along the way. During those times, families decorated their front yards for Easter and birthdays, neighborhood kids created sidewalk chalk art with hope-filled affirmations, and many of the beautiful olive trees surrounding the community were illuminated with bright-white lights—a literal and figurative beacon of hope in troubling times.
“As we look back on this year, we are so incredibly grateful to our staff members, HOA team and resident families who stayed strong and supportive, and always looked for ways to bring a smile to every situation,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “As I’ve said before, I couldn’t be prouder to belong to such a resilient and optimistic community.”
“This year especially,” continued Jones, “we are truly appreciative of all the people who banded together and worked so hard to maintain the great lifestyle we all enjoy at Riverstone. We’d like to thank the valued members of our cleaning crew who keep our Lodge recreation center spotless and safe, and our landscape crews who do such an amazing job of maintaining the beauty of Riverstone. We’re so appreciative of our construction teams who have been hard at work all year long building our homes, our upcoming school and our future Riverwalk retail destination. We’re thankful for the dedication and diligent work of Golden Valley Unified on our beautifully designed Stone Creek Elementary school—which will be opening next year. We appreciate the Police and Firefighters who serve our larger community as well as our local Sheriff’s office that kept us especially safe earlier this year with enhanced neighborhood protection. And last but certainly not least, our hats are off to all the moms and dads at Riverstone who are working from home and helping their children with distance learning at the same time.”
As one of the Valley’s best and most amenity-rich master-planned communities, the 2,000-acre Riverstone offers beautiful new-home designs from a total of six homebuilders—and a seventh homebuilder has just been announced. Wilson Homes, a premier homebuilder in the Central Valley for more than 55 years, will soon be bringing its Regent Park Modern Series to Riverstone. With a long list of innovative design accolades including its prestigious induction into the California Homebuilders Hall of Fame, Wilson Homes is renowned for uncompromising quality and attention to detail.
A large variety of new homes designed for today’s lifestyles is one of the things people love most about Riverstone, and it has no doubt factored into Riverstone’s nomination to receive the CVLUX Community of the Year Award. Riverstone won the prestigious accolade in 2019 and 2020, and has recently been nominated to receive the award for a third time.

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 the on-site Stone Creek Elementary school 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!
