Spending time in RiverLights waterfront homes is a breath of fresh air. This up and coming community is set right alongside the beautiful and historic Cape Fear River and residents make the most of living near the water. Enjoy over 500 acres of planned open space with large sand dunes, wetlands, and tidal marshes on the outskirts. RiverLights waterfront homes are well designed and the community offers the opportunity to know your neighbors and feel at peace in nature.
There is an abundance of amenities available to those living in RiverLights homes. Get exercise and fresh air while exploring the three miles of paths that surround the Lake at River Lights. That’s right, not only is there the river, but also a 38-acre lake! While visiting the lake, check out The Lake House, which houses a fitness center and a salt-water pool. Just steps away from The Lake House is Boat Builder Park, which will have a launch for boats, offer kayak and paddle board lessons, and much more. There will also be a space to gather with friends and enjoy the beautiful views and time together.
Spend time near the Cape Fear River by exploring the boardwalk system. Take in the lovely sunset after a meal or use the system to get from place to place. Stop at Ember Park, which will be right along the boardwalk and offer fire pits and tables, opportunities to roast oysters and marshmallows, and take cooking classes. Find access on the river to launch your kayaks, canoes, and small fishing boats from Driftwood Park also located along the boardwalk. Marina Village will be a short distance from any home and features shops and cafés. This is a great meeting place for friends. Wander over to Live Oak Commons to relax in a hammock or wait for a concert to begin.
Children find much to do in the community and get a quality education from New Hanover County Schools. There are many options for education within five miles of RiverLights ranging from preschool to higher education. While at home, take the kids to play at Portside Park, which will have a shrimp-boat inspired play structure and be the perfect place for a picnic and running out some energy. The full events calendar of this community also speaks to families, young professionals, and retirees. Watch for food festivals, holiday celebrations, live music, movies, and much more. There will be ample opportunities to get out, enjoy life, make new friends, and be thankful for living in such a vibrant and active community so close to Wilmington.
