An event­ful 2019 is planned for Riverstone

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Real Estate -

Ask any res­i­dent to name the best thing about liv­ing at Riverstone and chances are you’ll hear some­thing about its strong, wel­com­ing sense of com­mu­nity and be­long­ing. Part of the rea­son is Riverstone’s walk­a­ble neigh­bor­hoods and shared ameni­ties that just nat­u­rally bring peo­ple to­gether, but an­other big rea­son be­hind all the ca­ma­raderie is the com­mu­nity’s on­go­ing line-up of events and cel­e­bra­tions through­out ev­ery year.

“By de­sign, our com­mu­nity’s al­ways been much more than a col­lec­tion of new homes — we of­fer a life­style,” says Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “We’ve al­ways strived to cre­ate a fun and en­er­getic place where neigh­bors can come to­gether and en­joy unique ex­pe­ri­ences as well as all of life’s cel­e­bra­tions — what­ever they may be. I don’t think you’ll find a com­mu­nity any­where with a more

ac­tive so­cial cal­en­dar.”

The so­cia­ble fun at Riverstone for 2019 kicks off in mid Jan­uary with a Cookin’ it Up at Riverstone din­ner event fea­tur­ing a cook­ing demo from Ruth’s Chris Steak­house. Res­i­dents in at­ten­dance will see prepa­ra­tions of var­i­ous recipes — along with in­ter­est­ing sto­ries of Ruth and how the restau­rant’s dishes were cre­ated. Of course, all who at­tend will be able to get a taste of what’s be­ing pre­pared.

In early Fe­bru­ary, to cel­e­brate ti­tle-de­cid­ing foot­ball, Riverstone will host its sec­ond an­nual Big Bowl Su­per Party. Des­tined to be even big­ger than last year’s event, happy par­ty­go­ers can ex­pect to sa­vor great food and drink, and watch the game on mul­ti­ple big-screen TVs show­ing ev­ery minute of the foot­ball ac­tion. Specif­i­cally for the kids, Riverstone is once again plan­ning to of­fer a bounce house as well as tasty treats such as pop­corn and cot­ton candy.

Na­tional Pi Day will be cel­e­brated at Riverstone on March 14 (3.14) the way it is meant to be cel­e­brated. Res­i­dents will be able to swing by The Lodge any time through­out the day, en­joy a com­pli­men­tary slice of pie and cof­fee, and sim­ply kick back and re­lax.

Then in April, Riverstone will once again hold its leg­endary Easter Egg Hunt. Last year’s event saw more than 100 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies en­joy photo op­por­tu­ni­ties with the Easter Bunny and spir­ited games of Jenga and hunt for a stag­ger­ing 1,000 hid­den Easter eggs (in­clud­ing the cov­eted Golden Eggs).

Many of the com­mu­nity’s events take place in Riverstone’s so­cial epi­cen­ter — The Lodge. Sit­u­ated in the heart of Riverstone’s in­au­gu­ral res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood called the Lodge Dis­trict, The Lodge is a one-of-akind, re­sort-style com­mu­nity club­house with a dis­tinc­tive con­tem­po­rary-meets-agrar­ian ar­chi­tectu- ral style. The Lodge also hosts on­go­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and get-to­geth­ers nearly ev­ery month such as yoga and cir­cuit classes in its state-of-the-art fit­ness cen­ter, and cook­ing classes in its demon­stra­tion kitchen.

In ad­di­tion to Riverstone’s sea­sonal, com­mu­nity-wide events, the help­ful events co­or­di­na­tor at The Lodge is avail­able to as­sist res­i­dents in rent­ing out the many flex­i­ble spa­ces of the fa­cil­ity to host all types of events and cel­e­bra­tions — any­thing from birth­days, baby show­ers, wed­dings, grad­u­a­tions and an­niver­saries to other im­por­tant mile­stones.

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, as well as com­mer­cial and mixed-use space in­clud­ing of­fice, ser­vice and re­tail. Ameni­ties at Riverstone are an­tic­i­pated to in­clude walk­a­ble neigh­bor­hoods, parks and open space, mul­ti­ple com­mu­nity club­houses, hik­ing and bik­ing trails, a dog park, a com­mu­nity farm, his­toric olive and cit­rus groves, a sus­tain­able wa­ter sup­ply, and on-site schools be­long­ing to the award-win­ning Golden Val­ley Uni­fied School Dis­trict.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the new-home com- mu­nity of Riverstone and its col­lec­tions of new homes from Bon­adelle Neigh­bor­hoods, D.R. Hor­ton, Len­nar, McCaf­frey Homes and Wa­then Cas­tanos Homes, home­buy­ers are en­cour­aged to visit the com­mu­nity’s web­site at www.River­stoneCA.com and add their name to the in­ter­est list.

It was “the more, the mer­rier” for many Riverstone fam­i­lies, who came to­gether to en­joy food, drink and fes­tive fun dur­ing this year’s Coun­try­side Win­ter Won­der­land Hol­i­day Mixer.

The Lodge at Riverstone felt more like Santa’s work­shop as fam­i­lies and kids made their own hol­i­day cre­ations dur­ing the re­cent Ru­dolph & Olaf Or­na­ment Dec­o­rat­ing Party.
