HOW TO Add More Recreation to Your Lifestyle

When homeowners are surveyed about the features they most favor in their communities, easy-access, recreation-oriented amenities always come to the top of the list.

At River Islands in Lathrop, prospective homebuyers have as many recreation and relaxation-oriented lifestyle choices as they do model homes to choose from.  This best-selling master planned community, built against the backdrop of the San Joaquin River, is comprised of almost 5,000 acres of land, planned for a diverse number of uses, including residential neighborhoods by some of Northern California’s best homebuilders.  Currently, seven different neighborhoods offer   23 model homes and a broad array of architectural styles; by summertime, two more neighborhoods with innovative home designs will be added to the mix.

Among the most popular amenities of the homes are “California rooms”, a unique indoor-outdoor architectural feature that allows homeowners more living area in their yards, complete with outdoor fireplaces and areas for relaxing and dining.

Many of the homes at River Islands are located within lakeside neighborhoods, and all neighborhoods are located within walking access of one of the community’s nine lakes.  The lakes offer the opportunity for neighbors to go out with canoes, kayaks, pedal-boats—anything craft without a motor—for before- and after-work recreation. Two large lakes separate the residential side of River Islands from a 350-acre planned Business Park, which is fully-entitled and shovel-ready.

River Islands has already built and opened a large community park and a number of neighborhood parks, all with distinct features, from play structures and picnic areas to a softball diamond, basketball courts and even a dog park. A Community Liaison has been hired to organize clubs and events, like the popular summertime “Movies in the Park” evenings.

The first phase of the community’s trail system is now open, providing joggers, walkers and bicyclists access to views of the San Joaquin River from its surfaced pathway.

The students at the River Islands Technology Academy have an opportunity to learn to sail as members of the school’s own sailing club.  River Islands Technology Academy is a top-ranking K-8 charter school on-site, with a technology-rich curriculum and a 1:1 ratio of mobile devices per student.
