The residents of St. Johns County love where they live. How could they not, when they have the state’s top schools, proximity to the pristine St. Johns River, a hometown feeling they can’t find anywhere else in North Florida, and a life within a hidden paradise that takes them away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Jacksonville? Although they love St. Johns County, it’s really the extra special amenities of RiverTown that set their lifestyle apart. Here’s a look at what makes RiverTown, the First Coast’s New Hometown.
The first five years of a child’s life are some of the most formative. This is the time when their brain is constantly expanding, absorbing information from everything that they come across, and applying that information to their daily lives. Information like that is what helps make schools in St. Johns County so great. It’s why magazines such as Forbes have recognized St. Johns County as one of the best school districts in the country. Schools here realize that learning takes place outside of the classroom as well as inside it. Recognizing that RiverTown has taken that principle to heart, as well. That’s why RiverTown’s amenities and programs are the perfect fit to help develop the young brain. Dance, sing, and move your body at a Marytime Music class. Stretch and play while the parents of the neighborhood meet each other at Stroller Strides, and stretch your legs at the Tot Lot.
One thing that gives RiverTown its hometown feel is how there’s something for everyone, no matter their age. Young families love the pirate themed water play area and the kids tennis classes, which are great ways to get families outside and moving. Kids love meeting up with friends and burning up energy on the Tot Lot. The RiverHouse also offers a resort style pool complete with a corkscrew slide! Quick tip: you can even host birthday parties here! One of the most popular days on the calendar is Food Truck Fridays. After all, who can turn down barbecue, fries, or sugar smothered donuts from some of the best local vendors in the area? If you’re looking to get your adrenaline pumping, the fun games and activities at the RiverClub should fit the bill! How can you go wrong when you have an outdoor amphitheater, a game room, and boardwalk access to the St. Johns River? For those looking to enjoy themselves in a laid-back sort of way, the RiverHouse offers a way to do so. A resort style pool with a corkscrew waterslide lets kids burn off energy while adults reconnect over parties at rented rooms, or over an outdoor fire pit while roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Grab a few friends for a soccer game, meet them at the Yoga Studio, or just enjoy a good conversation and each other’s company. Whatever you do, you know that you’re going to have a good time.
A neighborhood can have the coolest amenities and the most gorgeous homes, but the best neighborhoods are the ones that extend a warm hand – or a paw in this case – to pet owners and their animals. Enter RiverTown’s Paw Park, a place for man’s best friend to run, chase, and simply enjoy being outside together. Featuring two separate sections for big and small dogs to enjoy, agility courses in each section, and water fountains to quench your dog’s thirst. Bring your buddy to bond and meet neighboring pets as well! Whether your new puppy needs a quick walk to tire him out or your dog loves to run alongside you, RiverTown’s extensive trails and sidewalks are a sure way to get your dog to exercise.
Hitting The Courts
Game, set, and match! Whether you’re an ultra-competitive player or prefer a casual game with friends, you know that RiverTown has your game night covered. Pick your playing field-they have three Har-Tru tennis courts, basketball courts and an open field for soccer. Practice your swing or taking shots on goal! Kids who are looking to round out their edge will enjoy the kids’ karate classes offered every week, too!
Rocking the River
The area’s most noticeable landmark, the St. Johns River, runs alongside RiverTown. It’s the gathering place for many a RiverTown resident, whether they choose to meet at the RiverClub, the neighborhood’s one-size-fits-all rec center, for kayaking or to fish off of its docks. It’s where humans and nature live side by side, where you can keep an eye out for everything from river otters to little blue herons. It’s kind of like the neighborhood that it runs past-it can be many different things, but it will always be what you choose to make of it. Complete with kayaks, a waterfront boardwalk, and an infinity edge pool with expansive views, it’s hard to be bored here. The RiverTown Community Park offers an additional pier to enjoy the view from.
The residents of this St. Johns County neighborhood are ready to let the cat out of the bag, and they want you in on it! A neighborhood isn’t truly a home unless it’s something that fits your lifestyle. That’s why RiverTown has so many choices that you can make. You can choose from multiple unique floor plans and personalize your home with select details. With a selection of move-in ready homes, 10 different neighborhoods, and a range of home prices starting in the low $200s, it is a buyer-friendly approach to finding the perfect house and making the perfect life. RiverTown is also home to Riverside, an exclusive neighborhood of custom estate homes located with private docks on the St. Johns River.
The community is centrally located with close proximity to Jacksonville and the historic city of St. Augustine on Florida’s First Coast. St. Johns County boasts the top-rated schools in the State of Florida, incredibly beautiful beaches and great shopping, dining and entertainment. World Golf Village is just minutes away, and a variety of professional sports are a part of the Jacksonville social scene. There are always great concerts, festivals and events on the calendar, and a wide array of cultural venues to experience the history and arts of this dynamic region. The area is also well known for its wealth of top-notch medical facilities.
After learning about all of these exciting happenings, you may be asking yourself if it’s really as good as it seems. Just ask the residents that are already thriving in their new community.
