This place is like nowhere else. We have the largest collection of private residences in a woodlands preservation setting anywhere on the North Shore. Pair that with miles of bikes paths, woods packed with hundred year-old trees and a rich natural environment on the ground below, and you’ll see why there’s nothing like it anywhere. With easy access to major highways and train lines, the city is only a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Privacy, simplicity, personality, accessibility: our residents protect it, cherish it, and are committed to its continued prosperity.

Ditches and drainageways

Please remember your ditches and drainageways. They need to get cleaned up so when it rains debris doesn’t get picked up and washed into the culverts and end up blocking them and the flow of water. NOTE: it is illegal to dump materials such as grass clippings or leaves into a recognized drainageway. Violators may be issued a citation. If you see someone dumping or see debris in one of our drainageways, please contact me at the 847-945-3990 x338 or email me at rdurning@riverwoods-il.net.
