Riverwood Reviews

Average Rating:
4.0
  • (Resident/Homeowner)Rating:
    We have lived at Riverwood for going on two years now and have really enjoyed the change of pace from our old community. People here are very friendly and there is lots to do. I take exercise classes every week, I play canasta with the girls and crafts too. Harry likes poker nights, Mah Jongg and we both love to golf. It's been great getting back to enjoying our free time together!
