Walking Paths & LifeTrail®

Walking paths outline the entire RiverWoods campus allowing our residents, staff and visitors to enjoy the beautifully landscaped areas of the community.

In the summer of 2009, RiverWoods received a generous donation of The LifeTrail® Advanced Wellness System from Playworld Systems of Lewisburg. Several exercise stations were placed along the walking path and are designed to promote good posture, core strength, active stretching, balance, and strength training. The equipment is specifically for older adults desiring an active lifestyle and was designed in collaboration with gerontology, kinesiology, and recreation experts from Penn State University.

Creative Arts and Crafts and Woodworking Studios

Creativity shines in the RiverWoods woodwork and art and craft studios. The Studio and the wood-shop both allow residents to share their creativity with each other and visitors.
