Although Parrish is a growing community, life here is a little quieter and slower. Parrish enjoys less population density than the rest of Manatee County and it has managed to retain a good amount of Old Florida charm. Rivers Reach was designed to take maximum advantage of nature along the banks of the Manatee River. To this end, Neal Communities gave each single-family residence at Rivers Reach plenty of room and landscaping.
The amenities at Rivers Reach include private entrances, canoe launch, sand volleyball, a swimming pool and fitness center, barbeque and picnic areas, nature trails and a private nature preserve. Needless to say, enjoying family life is one of the highlights of living at Rivers Reach, which is served by the excellent Williams Elementary, Buffalo Middle and Palmetto High of the Manatee County Schools District. Rivers Reach is about three miles from I-75, but less than an hour from the Gulf Coast beaches. Suburban comforts of shopping and entertainment are just a short drive away.
