It can be hard to find the time to get outside. Between work and taking care of our families, the timeless practices of getting outside and running around seem to be disappearing. Many families are looking for ways to get outside in a safe and productive way, and search for a community that provides exactly that with playgrounds, pools and fun outdoor activities. St. Johns County works hard to preserve its nature—after all, it’s an important part of their history. The nearby St. Johns River was used to help ship citrus and tourists from Charleston to Jacksonville. And right on the its banks is Mattamy Homes’ RiverTown. It’s not hard here for the residents to get outside and have fun—preserved natural areas, including the St. Johns River are a part of the neighborhood. Between kayaking down the river, walking down the miles of trails that run through the neighborhood, or enjoying the wildlife that’s in the area, it’s easy to find your inner nature at RiverTown.
With the river so close by, residents can tie it into every aspect of their lives. You can easily set off from the boat launch in your own private craft or kayak, and be navigating the twists and turns of the river within minutes. The river itself also draws in some of your more wild neighbors, such as egrets and otters. Living side by side with nature makes it easier to spend time with younger family members, and impart on them how important it is to protect and appreciate our natural resources. Redfish, snook and catfish naturally populate the St. Johns River in large quantities, making every fishing trip memorable. Don’t worry about catching something or not—it’s more about the memories that you make than it is about how many fish you bring home.
There are so many ways to get outdoors at RiverTown, so that the only problem is deciding where to start! Hike, bike and run your way through the miles of trails that run through the neighborhood and set your own exercise routine. Nearby Riverfront Park offers a place for you and your kids to make up your own fun games to run around to, or for residents to simply sit in peace on the banks of the river and watch the boats go by. Fido can get in on the fun as well at the neighborhood dog park, where pups can run through obstacles, meet their furry neighbors and their owners, and chase sticks in wide open spaces to their heart’s content. Whether you take it slow or are always looking for the next opportunity, you can always find an activity that’s your pace at RiverTown.
One of the best ways to spend time at RiverTown is at the newly unveiled RiverClub Amenity Center. It’s hard to refuse its charms, especially when it offers a resort-style pool, an outdoor amphitheater, and a riverside dock and kayak launch. The RiverClub will serve as the local event hosting center, where food trucks will gather for residents to sample their wares, where community-wide holiday events will be held, and where residents will gather to prepare to see shows at the outdoor amphitheater. Go stargazing during a music performance, or enjoy curling up with friends and family at a fire pit on a cool day. Spend hours bird-watching for exotic avian species alongside the St. Johns River, and watch the kids play long games of Marco Polo in the pool until long after the sun goes down. When you have so many ways to spend time with family and friends, you can take advantage of every moment.
