Ridgewood Park is a community in Richmond Hill, a city in the Savannah metro area. It is currently growing in popularity as more people seek to move into more suburban communities near Savannah. The Savannah real estate market is already growing as a result. Recently in May, 2015, an announcement was made by WaterWays Township to increase its footprint in the area by adding more Richmond Hill homes for sale. A total of 39 new home sites will be added to the Ridgewood Park community in Richmond Hill. This particular development was named Community of the Year for the last two years by the Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah.
The new home sites will add to the Savannah homes for sale in the area and will be built in Ridgewood Park’s phases three and four. The sites will offer lake views, a park, a preserve and attractive wooded lots. The new phases will help expand the amenities offered by the community to both current and new residents as well. It will include King Sale Lake access and five acres dedicated to outdoor activities such as fishing, canoeing and paddle boarding. A new neighborhood park will also be constructed near King Sale Lake and will offer access to features such as the Ridgewood Play Area, Trellis Park, the Cottenham Nature Trail and Community Gardens.

Residents looking for a more suburban and relaxed atmosphere will find much to like in this Savannah real estate area. The two new phases of Ridgewood Park are expected to reach completion by June of 2015.
