Resident Life at River Bluffs
To create a greater sense of community and extend a warm welcome to new residents, River Bluffs developers and residents have worked together to launch 30 neighborhood social clubs. The clubs offer something for everyone, boosting resident connections and engagement, as well as environmental community service within and around the neighborhood. A perfect neighborly solution for sharing individual skills, services, and expertise, the community social clubs make it even easier to put down roots and feel right at home at River Bluffs.
From gardening and handyman help to gaming and foodie interest, the River Bluffs social clubs feature a vibrant mix of popular hobbies and social opportunities. Of the variety of clubs available, the helping hands and naturalist’s groups have gained the highest following within the neighborhood. Recently, club members have started building bat boxes, bird homes and bird baths along the trails and parks within the community. Residents have also come together to support the community farm, lending a hand to the farm staff while they assemble a new all-season “high-tunnel” (produce facility). Club participation and the community’s dedication to nature has helped make River Bluffs a beautiful and inviting place to live. In addition to club activities, residents enjoy a number of social events throughout the year.
