How would you like to live in a neighborhood described as “walkable, dynamic, and vibrant?” In a place that “[brings] residents and visitors together for special events and serve as central gathering places in the everyday life of their community”? The American Planning Association ran the numbers, and those who are living in Riverwood Athletic Club are doing just that; and it’s easy to see why.
About the Competition
As the Clayton News Star reported: The awards are part of the second annual “Great Places in North Carolina” initiative, sponsored by the NC chapter of the APA. Headed by Emily Beddingfield, a town planner in Clayton, a panel of experts, including town planners, professors, and architects from across the state, chose six neighborhoods in the state as finalists. Then the competition was turned over to the public who cast their votes – and Riverwood was recognized as a Top Place to Raise Kids!
“Great Neighborhood for Kids”
One of the great things about this neighborhood is that the schools are easy for children to walk or ride their bikes to. That they’re also ranked as Schools of Excellence, and Business Weekly ranked them as Top 10 schools, makes this even more attractive. Other top benefits to the children are:
a large outdoor waterpark
an indoor pool
an on-site daycare
