About Us



Riverwood is a private deed restricted and gated residential community situated along the Myakka River.  Our residents enjoy the serene beauty of nature preserves, ponds, lakes and views of the river. There are over 1300 homes, condos, and villas which are governed by the Riverwood Community Homeowner’s Association (RCA). The Riverwood Community Development District (RCDD) manages the infrastructure such as the water/sewer system and the irrigation system. The RCA and RCDD share the maintenance of the property.

 The Riverwood Community was started in 1992, was purchased by Centex in the late 1990’s and completed in 2014.  The 29 neighborhoods comprising Riverwood each have a different flavor, but nearly every home backs on the golf course, a lake, a pond, our nature preserves, or the Myakka River. 

 Our tranquil nature preserves are teeming with wildlife and eagles, osprey, herons, turtles and alligators are easy to spot.  Our more elusive neighbors include bobcats, owls, possum, and otters.

 There are many activities for active adults ranging from various exercise classes, tennis, and croquet to quiet games of cards, crafts, choral groups, and book discussions, or just relaxing by the pool.

 The activities campus includes tennis, bocce, and croquet courts, a community pool, a fitness center, a library, pool and ping pong tables, and several meeting/game rooms.  Our full time activities director provides us with a wealth of entertainment opportunities in our activities center as well as the Southwest Florida area.  We have a beach club located on Manasota Key providing club members with beach front including a picnic area, changing rooms, rest rooms and parking.

 The jewel in the community is the Riverwood golf course. Truly unique as a result of its design features, natural beauty and varying challenges, this Golf Digest Top Rated course is considered to be one of Southwest Florida's best kept secrets. A Gene Bates designed, par 72 Championship course, the first nine holes flows through heavily wooded terrain, rich in stands of natural pine and back nine borders our wetland preserve for two very different golfing experiences in one course.
