In Riverlights, water is a part of the day’s routine. So, we made sure our many parks and trails launch you right into the endless adventures of the Cape Fear River, clubhouse pool, and 38-acre lake. So put on your running shoes, fill your picnic basket, grab your book, and bring a beverage of choice! Fun is right outside your front door.
The perfect place to watch the sunset in Wilmington (it’s won awards for that) and connect with the beautiful nature surrounding Riverlights any time of day.
Live Oak Commons
Under a canopy of live oak trees adjacent to the river, this is where we host local markets, live music, outdoor yoga classes, and events like Movies on the Lawn.
Overlooking the Cape Fear River, this park is a favorite place to read along the riverfront during the day and enjoy the warmth of fire pits in the evening.
One of the most serene spots in Riverlights, where the sound of waves meets toes in the sand. Enjoy panoramic river views while crabbing, canoeing, fishing, or chilling.
This is the afternoon destination for kids who have energy to burn and parents who want to put more nature and sunshine in playtime.
This long, linear park along Riverlights Lake is a string of outdoor experiences: dog-walking areas and open spaces for throwing the ball or a game of flag football.
The Lake Loop
Good energy gets created on our eight miles of scenic trails. You (and your four-legged friends) can go three miles around the lake by bike, board, or foot.
Boat Builder Park
This is where you can launch your paddleboard, canoe, kayak, or any non-motorized boat onto the 38-acre lake at the heart of Riverlights.
