Parks & Trails

Let the Fun Shine In

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 Lake Loop at Riverlights Community Wilmington, NC

The Boardwalk

Beyond being the best place to watch the sunset in Wilmington (it’s won awards for that), this is the perfect place to connect with the beautiful nature surrounding Riverlights any time of day.

Beacon Point

A simple entrance to The Boardwalk that's marked by a beacon landmark and takes you all the way to Driftwood Park. It’s a fisherman’s paradise and a beautiful place to embrace nature.

Picnic in Live Oak Commons.

Live Oak Commons

Under a canopy of live oak trees adjacent to the river, you’ll find the park where we host the local artesan market, live music, outdoor yoga classes, and events like Movie on the Lawn.

Ember Park

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.

Driftwood Park

One of the most serene spots in Riverlights, where the sound of waves meets toes in the sand. Its panoramic river-views invite you in for a day of crabbing, canoeing, fishing, or chilling.

Portside Park

This is the afternoon destination for kids who have energy to burn and parents who want to put more nature and sunshine in playtime.

Linear Park

This long, linear park along Riverlights Lake is a string of outdoor experiences: dog-walking areas, open spaces for throwing the ball or a family 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.
