The Riverlights community is welcoming and making new friends has been easy.

Bob and Pattie - Verified Resident (Since 2019)

We have restaurants and services within walking distance with many more new businesses to follow. All of this fit right into the lifestyle we desired at this point in our lives.

Every day I see new improvements at Riverlights.

From amenities to landscaping everything Newland does is first class. “I’ve always enjoyed being on my boat and WaveRunner on the sea. At Riverlights, I paddle boarded on the lake for the first time.
