Despite River Park being a predominantly residential area, the neighborhood is surrounded by lots of green space. To the west lies Sportsman's Park which boasts a playground and many sports facilities.

This neighborhood is also home to the River Park Marina which features fishing, walking trails, picnic pavilions, grills, and a playground. The park is a firm family favorite and it is not hard to see why!
Another great place to take your pup is the Savannas Preserve State Park which is located east of the neighborhood.
