What’s on the horizon for River Islands? New neighborhoods, public facilities, recreational amenities and a River Islands mobile app are all just around the corner this spring and summer season for our residents. You could say we’re a little excited, but that would definitely be an understatement.
River Islands at Lathrop is in celebration mode, with the upcoming Grand Openings of four new neighborhoods. Here’s a rundown of the upcoming new additions to River Islands for spring/summer 2019:
Each new neighborhood coming to River Islands will offer energy-efficient features, various outdoor living spaces, and plenty of room for extended family and guests. We can’t wait for these neighborhoods to open and show you around! Latitude II, Watermark and Haven will be opening in May so make sure you are signed up to get updates of our plans for River Islands through our monthly newsletter, The Currents. Just scroll down the page for the sign up form!
Alongside the Grand Opening of new neighborhoods, we’re happy to announce the opening of River Islands Fire Station 35 this past month! River Islands and the Lathrop-Manteca Fire District have worked closely together to design, build and equip one of the finest fire stations in Northern California. The long-awaited addition of this fire station will help improve response times for our community to keep our neighborhoods safe. The Fire Station also has a dedicated community meeting room specifically designed and built for clubs, civic organizations and groups like the Neighborhood Watch to meet.
At Islanders Field, the field is set, the seats are in, and the scoreboard is ready to be lighted. The 500-seat stadium, with food service from The Boathouse, is going to host baseball almost every weekend from the time of its opening until the end of the year. Please watch the River Islands Facebook Page or go to MyRiverIslands.com for more information about Opening Day. And of course, we will post an update on the blog! We can’t wait to see our residents get an opportunity to have some fun with our new baseball diamond and to catch a weekend game. Let’s PLAY BALL!
If baseball isn’t your sport of choice, our neighborhood soccer club, River Islands Futbol Club, is also gearing up for the 2019 season. Get those soccer balls and cleats ready to hit the ground running! Every player regardless of age and level of ability is welcome to join. Recreational Leagues and Competitive League play will begin at the River Islands Soccer Academy Fields, adjacent to Islanders Field, this spring. Presented by John Doyle Soccer Camps, league sign ups will begin online May 1st at www.RiverIslandsFC.com.
With so much activity happening in the Town Center area of River Islands, it stands to reason that the Welcome Center would relocate to be in the center of it all. In April, the entire Welcome Center—porch and all—will take to the road and move to the corner of Somerston Parkway and River Islands Parkway. This move reflects our commitment to creating new neighborhoods and community facilities in and around our future Town Center. And the space that it leaves behind will be turned into a Community gathering area! During the move and the set-up of the Welcome Center, business will go on as usual from a trailer on the new site. The space is small, but our Welcome Center specialists, Jamie Koski and Tiana Gatan, will be on hand to answer questions and hand out Tour Guides of the new neighborhoods and attractions coming our way! The Welcome Center phone number remains the same: 209-808-5168.
As if that wasn’t enough to get excited about, there’s more! River Islands strives to stay at the forefront of bringing new technology home to our residents, and one of the ways we’re doing just that is by launching our very own River Islands community mobile app. With our new mobile app, you’ll find driving directions to the neighborhoods and the Welcome Center, our community blog, event calendar, information about our schools, as well as information on the neighborhood amenities. Talk about a one-stop-shop! The mobile app will have everything you need to know about River Islands and the community we all know and love.
With all of this at your fingertips, what’s not to love about River Islands? With a location that is roughly equidistant to San Francisco, the Silicon Valley and Sacramento, you can live here and be everywhere.
