Riverwood is the community for you. Taking a page from the past, Riverwood is a place where children walk or ride bikes to award winning community schools. Less time on the road, more time together, Riverwood offers maximum convenience for those on the go by providing so many opportunities in the community from day care to music lessons to the Riverwood Athletic Club to a grocery store across the street. Enjoy the active lifestyle Riverwood has to offer. All types of afternoon and evening activities can be found within the community.
Riverwood hosts events and festivals throughout the year. In the past, street festivals, triathlons, artists-in-the-village concerts, Easter egg hunts, Christmas in Riverwood, and dinner with Santa have been held. Riverwood's elementary and middle schools join the proud list of Johnston County schools which rank among the top in the Triangle area. Riverwood Elementary School and Riverwood Middle School have been designated as Schools of Excellence by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
