An outdoor paradise
If you venture a few miles south of downtown Wilmington along the Cape Fear river, you’ll find the master-planned idyllic community of Riverlights. The carefully designed neighborhood flaunts stunning sunset views, an abundance of amenities and plenty of friendly neighbors ready to offer a cup of sugar. As you wind your way through the neighborhood, you will notice the casual wave from residents playing bocce on the court, riding their bike along the lake path, or walking their dog in the park. The presence of so many green spaces is comforting and expected in a community that encourages enjoyment of the outdoors. A central part of the neighborhood is the 38-acre lake with a 3-mile gravel path surrounding the expansive body of water. Homes look onto the water with its numerous fountains and wildlife, including birds, fish and turtles. A kayak and canoe launch, called The Boathouse, is available for those residents wanting to take advantage of the aquatic activities. With the neighborhood’s close proximity to the Cape Fear River, the enormous cargo ships towering over the trees is an event enjoyed by many.
For cooling off in the summer, the clubhouse offers a generous-sized pool with a slide, lap lanes and a beach entry. Residents can also enjoy the gym, yoga studio, outdoor firepit, playground, screened-in patio with numerous rocking chairs and gathering spaces all located at the clubhouse. With an easy golf cart drive up to the community square, Marina Village, you will find shops, places to dine, hammocks for lounging, and a common area where many concerts and markets are held. A boardwalk meanders through the trees taking you along the river to a day dock, fishing pier and social gathering spot called Ember Park with oyster roasting pits, tables for eating, green space and corn hole. The sunsets are the jewel of the neighborhood and Riverlights offers an abundance of spots to watch the evening sun put on its glorious show.
