Fun, Food & Prizes Found at Riverstone’s Easter Egg Hunt
April 14, 2018
More than 100 children and their families joined the fun on Saturday, March 31st at Madera County’s Riverstone for the community’s very first Easter Egg Hunt. The enthusiastic kids—with soon-to-be-filled baskets in hand—went scrambling across the lawn at The Lodge community clubhouse to hunt for a staggering 1,000 hidden Easter eggs. The kids managed to uncover every last one, and those lucky enough to find the coveted “Golden Eggs” received an extra prize.
Even when the hunt was over, the fun continued for Riverstone’s youngest residents, who thoroughly enjoyed the Bounce House, spirited games of Jenga, getting creative with sidewalk chalk art, and meeting and posing for photos with the Easter Bunny. Other fun photo opportunities included posing with colorful, oversized Easter egg and bunny cut-outs on the grass, as well as an indoor photo booth.
A delicious array of food and drink kept the partygoers happy, including turkey and cheese sandwiches, an assortment of fresh fruits, and every kid’s favorite sandwich—the PB&J. Festive treats including snow cones and cotton candy were enjoyed by just about everyone, and the day’s sports events were shown on The Lodge’s big-screen TVs—allowing sports-loving moms and dads to still catch some of the action and latest scores.
“It was great to have so many our resident families come out and enjoy this special day with us,” said Riverstone’s Tim Jones. “Judging from the turnout and all the smiling faces, it’s safe to say this event will become another annual Riverstone tradition.”
The Lodge at Riverstone, where the event took place, is the centerpiece of the Lodge District residential neighborhood, which includes two community parks (and three more on the way), a number of planned hiking and biking trails, and Riverstone’s first collections of stylish, innovative new homes that are now selling.
An upcoming elementary school is also planned for the Lodge District, and construction plans are well underway for the education facility, which will belong to the Golden Valley Unified School District, one of the highest performing school districts in the Central Valley. The school is anticipated to open in time for the 2021 school year.
Rising from a 16.3-acre site within walking and biking distance from Riverstone’s new homes, the future elementary school is expected to accommodate 625 students. The innovative campus is planned to feature tech-forward 21st century classrooms, a state-of-the-art Library/Media Center, a dedicated music room, outdoor learning spaces, a large outdoor amphitheater and a dynamic sports complex.
Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes, as well as commercial and mixed-use space including office, service and retail. Amenities at Riverstone are anticipated to include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, multiple community clubhouses, hiking and biking trails, a dog park, a community farm, historic olive and citrus groves, a sustainable water supply, and on-site schools.

The freshwater lake eight miles from Riverstone is full of fish and ready. There’s also Millerton Lake, just 13 miles away. Happy angling!
