It is no secret that Riviera Dunes is one of the prime locations in Florida for boating. But did you know that it is also a runner's, jogger's and walker's paradise? The private roads and walkways in this water-front community create the best conditions for a casual or brisk jog or walk, morning or evening, most days of the year.
Long Favorable Season
Spring is perhaps the best time to be here due to the flowers' bloom! Blessed with moderate temperatures all throughout the year, residents of the Homes of Rivera Dunes enjoy the outdoors twelve months a year. Yes, summers can be on the humid side, but eight months of the year have ideal weather. Even in the summer, early mornings and late evenings are often pleasant enough for a walk or a jog.
Birds are Everywhere
Many areas in Palmetto and Manatee County are bird sanctuaries. Birds are protected and thrive here like nowhere else. If you are a bird lover, you will thoroughly enjoy walking the Rivera Dunes grounds all year around. Above are some of the birds observed in our community.

Beautiful Paths and Scenery
Unlimited Distance Options
You can hence walk as little as half a mile or as long as you wish by adding more loops around the hammocks and cul-de-sacs.
Also, if you are a slip licensee, consider also strolling on your community dock. It will further diversify the scenery. It is also always great to have more licensees on the docks keeping an eye on the boats in our harbor and making sure they are all secure.
Wonderful Healthy Activities
Walking and jogging are considered some of the best cardio activities for most ages. In addition to strengthening your heart, you can loose weight, tone up your muscles and get healthier.
The community also is very friendly. By being out there, you will have more of a chance to meet others and better know your neighbors. This atmosphere or friendliness adds tremendous comfort and reduces stress.
The Riviera Dunes community has recently held its first Block Party and Pig Roast which was a great event that brought many of the residents together.
