The Way Family

Home is about creating new memories with those you love.
It’s about getting together regularly to feel that heartfelt connection conveniently and easily with friends and family. Being closer to them is just one of the reasons The Way family moved to North River Ranch in Manatee County. Jordan, Lauren, Emma Grace, Jack, and Sadie Way love so many things about our Parrish, Florida community. “Jordan’s job brought us here, but we also have a lot of family that live here also. We are most recently from Concord, NC but have also lived in Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina.” The Ways sure do have a way of getting around! LOL!

It makes us very happy to help families like the Ways stay even more connected.
“We have never lived this close to family before!” Our amenities were chosen to provide plentiful opportunities for people to spend more quality time together. At North River Ranch, we believe in variety. There are plenty of active amenities and beautiful places to connect throughout our tranquil and friendly master-planned community, including the Riverfield Verandah. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the sparkling resort-inspired pool. Challenge yourself to a personal best at the Avid FitStations. Or kick back and relax under the 1,800 sq. ft. covered patio area and catch up with neighbors. The Brightwood Pavilion is also another popular venue in our community. You’ll equally love the outdoor and indoor spaces, including a modern and fully-equipped fitness center and a fully-appointed game room. There’s also another resort-inspired pool, event lawn, multi-purpose playing courts, gathering table, firepit conversation area, and so much more.

“Our favorite amenities are the pool, game room, and playground. Our children really enjoy the pool during the summer months and the playground is a great place for them to play with other kids and the green space is a great place for a game of whiffle ball baseball.” The North River Ranch bike share program makes it easy to enjoy fun adventures on two wheels. Or, if you’re just into taking a stroll, the Greenway connects all the neighborhoods at North River Ranch with links to our peaceful trail system. Everything makes the most of our year-round sunny climate, including our NRR FunDays and programmed activities and social gatherings. “North River Ranch offers a wonderful Florida location, and we also love going to the beach and the ZooTampa at Lowry Park. Another perk is being close to many sports teams, especially the Tampa Bay Rays!” They also love the excellent schools here, including the ones within walking distance from our community. “The best part about living at North River Ranch is the wonderful elementary school,  Barbara A. Harvey, that is so close and there are lots of families with kids, so our kids have lots of friends to play with.”

There’s only one place to get the best new construction home in a welcoming community with active indoor and outdoor amenities and excellent schools only a short drive from serene beaches. And that’s North River Ranch in Parrish, Florida.
