River Woods is a quiet, peaceful, deed restricted community surrounded by large, old majestic oak trees, which provide extra privacy to this already serene community. Located off of Old Tampa Road in Parrish, Florida the community is close to I-75 and an easy commute to Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, and Tampa.

Built on the north bank of the Manatee River, with only 259 homes River Woods is a small and friendly community where residents of all ages are likely to be seen walking in the evenings, riding their bikes or watching the birds along one of seven neighborhood ponds. River Woods is an exceptional place to call home.

Latest News
Dear Homeowners:
This message is from your managers at Associa and your Board of Directors. You should not have any friendly fires in your back yard, per Governor Scott's declaration.  The fires currently burning, and the possibility of more fires associated with the ongoing dry conditions prompted the governor to declare an emergency on Tuesday, April 11.
"There is no corner of the state that is not facing severe wildfire conditions" -- Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.
"This may only get worse as we enter the hotter summer months and it is crucial that we take every action right now to be prepared. It is incredibly important that wildfire response is swift and deliberate and this state of emergency will make it easier for our state, regional and local agencies to quickly work together to protect our families, visitors and communities." --Governor Rick Scott

Pond Water Discoloration
Reports of community pond water discoloration and fish kills are common this time of the year due to changes in temperature, algae blooms and oxygen levels in the water.  The Lake Doctors service is treating our ponds to help restore their color and vitality, and our local buzzards are cleaning up any dead fish.  This is a natural and short term event that should not be a cause of concern.  Let us know when you notice excess algae or other issues with the ponds so we can have them addressed promptly.
