What makes our community different from the rest? One thing is for certain: we pride ourselves on helping residents live a unique, tight-knit, active lifestyle. From picture-perfect sunsets along the San Joaquin River and spending long afternoons at the park, to having access to our very own restaurant – there’s no place like home at River Islands.

In addition to parks, trails, a restaurant, a fire station, and a state-of-the-art Islander’s baseball field, we also provide onsite education so that our youngest residents can commute and study close to home! If schools are a big priority for your “new home” search, the River Islands Technology Academy is a fantastic facility to enroll your budding scholars.

The River Islands Technology Academy is a tuition-free independent charter school established in 2013 to provide K-8 students with a specialized, technology-based curriculum and hands-on learning opportunities.

Students in ALL grade levels receive an iPad, Chromebook, or similar device for their in-class instruction and at-home studies to encourage a technology-enriched approach to learning – one of the many qualities that makes our school so unique!

At RiTechA, learning outside of the classroom is just as critically important as an in-classroom experience. Here, students have the ability to gain social skills and problem solving skills in a large variety of curriculars and clubs, such as: spelling bee, chess, volleyball, soccer, basketball, sailing, leadership, DARE, after-school tutoring, Camp Arroyo and Camp Sea Lab (5th and 6th grade), and so much more.

The administrators, teaching staff, parent volunteers, and board of trustees are dedicated to the mission of providing every student with a safe and supportive environment that promotes character building and academic achievement. This is the place where your kiddos can be college bound!

Because of the popularity of the Latitude neighborhood, Van Daele Homes has decided to expand its neighborhood offering with Latitude II! This new addition will be selling from the existing Latitude models, which have gotten a springtime makeover just in time for our Grand Opening celebration on May 18th! This collection will showcase the popular Latitude plans on larger lots in a different location, with floorplans offering up to 2,584 square feet and five bedrooms.

Oversized great rooms provide opportunities to comfortably entertain on the weekends and host big family reunions during the holidays. Beautiful gourmet kitchens with plenty of counter and cabinet space give the chef of the house a workable area to whip up delicious weeknight meals.

PLUS, bonus rooms and Van Daele Homes’ signature indoor/outdoor California rooms encourage more options to relax in the home!

A delicious food truck will be located at the Latitude models as well as the other three neighborhoods that are holding Grand Openings or Preview Showings during the celebration, so make sure to grab a snack while you walk through the model homes! The party starts at 11:00 a.m.! More details HERE.

Part of Richmond American Homes’ new Seasons™ Collection, Watermark will bring even more exciting options for first-time buyers and growing families who want to call River Islands home.

Four distinct floorplans will offer between 1,710 to 2,630 square feet with up to six bedrooms, as well as personalizing design options to accommodate your lifestyle and your family’s needs.

Whether you love to entertain or simply relax in your spare time, you can do it comfortably no matter which floorplan you choose! Breezy, open great rooms give everyone the freedom they need to play, work, and simply just be, and gourmet kitchens provide plenty of counter and storage space for everyone’s favorite snacks (and yours, too!). Use your bonus room as a study, a guest bedroom, a craft room, or a teen room, and spend time on your covered patio all year round.

Take a tour of Watermark’s brand-new model homes on Saturday, May 18th from 11 AM to 4 PM during our BIG Grand Opening weekend! Grab some grub from our favorite local food trucks while you visit FOUR of our new neighborhoods. Learn more about Watermark and the other neighborhoods coming to River Islands on our blog HERE.

If you fell in love with Anthem United’s Reflections neighborhood, we invite you to come out to our Grand Opening weekend on May 18th to tour their newest neighborhood, Haven (located right next door!).

If you’re looking for a home that can fit multiple family members, this neighborhood will offer four floorplans with up to 3,250 square feet of living space and six bedrooms – say HELLO to all of that extra space! Not only can the whole clan feel comfortable in the same common areas, but parents can enjoy living a connected lifestyle with open-concept layouts.

Need to start dinner, but your kiddos need help with their homework? No problem. They can sit at the dining room table or the kitchen island while you get cooking. Have guests over for a dinner party, but you need to tend to the main course? All of that open space keeps you part of the action so that you can mingle with everyone while you put on the finishing touches.

We hope you’ll join us on Grand Opening Day! Grab some grub from our favorite local food trucks while you visit all of the new model homes in the community! All festivities will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. More details HERE.
