Waterways - Overview

Coastal Living at its Finest

Richmond Hill is a community that perfectly melds small town living with everything you could desire from the modern world of today. Simply put, days can go as slow or as fast as you want them to in this unique coastal town.

As Richmond Hill continues to grow, the city has managed to maintain its charming, small-town atmosphere. Residents enjoy unique local dining options, a diverse array of local shops, frequent community festivals and events, group recreational programs, and even a multitude of entrepreneurial business opportunities.

The Charm of Savannah

The vibrant coastal city of Savannah is known for its fantastic food, culture, and charm. Here you’ll discover the scenic backdrop for films you’d recognize like “Forrest Gump,” streets lined with the historically significant architecture of the old south, and the bustling energy of artists sharpening their crafts at SCAD, the international university for creatives.

Today, the port of Savannah is the fourth largest in the nation and the second busiest container port on the east coast for exports of American goods. The proposed deepening of the port will generate powerful economic benefits such as more jobs, opportunities and long-term business growth for the Savannah and Richmond Hill area.


Deep Rooted History

Stretching back more than 5,000 years to the first great Native American civilization in North America, the Waterways land is a walkable history lesson. Many excavations have been conducted over the years, in which archaeologists have unearthed Native American arrowheads, pottery, tools and smoking pipes. In the 1500’s, the Spanish arrived on a mission to convert the Creeks and build The Mission of San Diego de Satuache, located along the edge of the Ogeechee River.

The Cottenham Plantation

Automobile icon Henry Ford purchased this property in the 1920’s, including a homestead called Cottenham Plantation, and some structural elements are still evident in the community today.

To live surrounded by such history is rare in the United States. At Waterways, we choose to celebrate and preserve this connection to the past. It’s an opportunity that is seldom replicated.


A Lifestyle of Adventure Awaits

Here, you’ll find endless opportunities to connect, renew and engage.

The Grand Lagoon 

Waterways’ numerous lakes are beautiful, recreational havens for residents where over 5 miles of navigable waterways wind through the diverse native habitats of the coastal uplands.

Grand Lagoon provides an ideal setting for a casual afternoon of canoeing or an invigorating workout by kayak. Access to deep water is planned for the avid boating family.

Ridgewood Amenity Center

Central to all of the Waterways neighborhoods is Ridgewood Amenity Center, featuring a junior Olympic swimming pool, fitness center, and a screened pavilion with an outdoor fireplace and gourmet grill. It’s the perfect spot for casual entertaining, relaxing with family and friends, or even a quick workout.

Biking & Pedestrian Paths 

At Waterways, all of our neighborhoods are connected not only by the water, but also by our multipurpose paths which are perfect for bikers and pedestrians alike. Residents enjoy walking the dog after dinner and morning bike rides with neighbors.

Waterwags Dog Park

Pets are part of the family at Waterways, and our Dog Park is an ideal place to enjoy nature… whether you have two legs, or four!

Waterwags Dog Park is an almost acre-sized, dedicated space for residents’ dogs to explore the outdoors and play with neighboring pups. The park is fenced-in and is equipped with benches and water fountains to ensure dogs are hydrated, and owners and dog walkers can take a seat and relax.

Community Gardens

For healthy living, Waterways offers residents the opportunity to grow fresh vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Located in Ridgewood Central Park, the community garden provides 24 plots for resident use. Our Garden Club provides an opportunity for learning and friendship.

The Events Lawn

Throughout many of our neighborhoods, we’ve created pocket parks for enhanced living. Our newest community greenspace is The Events Lawn in Ridgewood Park. Featuring a natural, grassy amphitheatre, this park provides the perfect setting for movie nights under the stars and concerts in the park. It also features ample space to toss a ball with the grandkids or for a game of grass volleyball, bocce ball or basketball.

Gated Entry

Our guard house makes a grand statement with its white painted brick exterior and gas lanterns that compliment the understated elegance of this coastal region. With its state-of-the-art access technology and visitor management system, residents feel relaxed and secure.




Marina Village

The center of our waterfront lifestyle will be found here, with stunning views of golden marshes, dry slip storage spaces, along with fresh water boat slips for residents. Green spaces and events lawns will complement a curated collection of quaint retail shops and casual dining. Accessible from every corner of the community via Harbor View Drive, a road with spectacular views of glistening waters, Marina Village is sure to become the heartbeat of Waterways.

Waterways Marina

Located along Redbird Waterway, the Marina will feature direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway, the Great Ogeechee River, and the Atlantic Ocean. Featuring dry slip storage, a ship store, and fueling and launching facilities, Waterways residents will have all they need for endless adventure. Coming Soon!

Cottenham Exchange

Not an ordinary community clubhouse, Waterways plans for two pools and a state-of-the-art fitness facility amongst panoramic views of marshes, ancient oaks, and gardens. With a snack bar, general store, kid’s zone, retail shops, and a casual place to grab a cup of coffee, Cottenham Exchange will be the perfect place to enjoy the unique soul of Waterways.
