More Information About River Village Neighborhoods
The separate NE section of River Village is referred to a the Providence or Hartford neighborhoods and the homes in this area were built by a popular local contractor, Beezer Homes. As previously mentioned, each community is gated but we find it a bit inconvenient the main clubhouse, large pool and spa is located in the far west gated community and not easily available to River Village residents living in the other sections of the community. They must exit one gated area and drive out to the main road to enter through another gated area in order to go for a swim or visit the clubhouse.
Residents love this entire area because it's fresh, new and and well maintained. Yes, there's a large swimming pool, small curbside parks, play areas, tennis, etc. Depending on which neighborhood, there are more pools and spas throughout the community.
