An Outdoor Lover’s Paradise
Rolling hills, the meandering Contoocook River, pristine forests, meadows and farms make up the landscape in and around the RiverMead community. Our outdoorsy residents love to go out and hike the numerous trail networks, ride their bikes, take a leisurely stroll, walk the dog, go out shopping, golfing or simply enjoy a gourmet meal with a to-go basket by the river.
Our riverview observation deck juts out over the banks of the Contoocook River and provides a convenient place for our anglers to fish for bass and trout or for residents to simply take in nature.
Our numerous hiking paths along the river and through the adjacent forest bring residents into the realm of diverse wildlife that share our beautiful natural setting.
Love to ride your bike? The paved RiverMead roads provide safe and easy bike routes and venturing off campus offers bicyclers virtually unlimited adventures along quiet country roads or throughout the bustling little town of Peterborough.
Fresh air, forested mountains, country roads and waysides by clear waters surround the area, showing their different colors with each change of seasons.
