Anchored by Whole Foods Market and REI, Waterside has an unparalleled 1.8 miles of frontage along the river and trails. The area’s natural amenities fused with the Conscious Place initiative results in a signature public space, “The Grove,” which draws hundreds of people at a time. Other elements include a community promotion shed, repurposed public art by Bob “Daddy-O” Wade, community pavilion and a 6,600-gallon rainwater cistern used to irrigate drought-resistant landscaping.
