Neighborhood Review of River Heights Overlook, a Gated Community in Steiner Ranch

Although the UT Golf Club is the largest, more recognizable gated section in Steiner Ranch, it may surprise you to learn that there are a small handful of other gated communities scattered throughout Steiner Ranch, such as Santa Luz, Lakewood Hills, and River Heights Overlook.

Today, I am going to go into detail about why River Heights Overlook, one of the gated communities mentioned above, is one of my favorite sections in Steiner Ranch!

You enter the gates of River Heights Overlook after you pass the Towne Square community park, Laura Welch Bush Elementary and Canyon Ridge Middle School. And, it is the proximity to those Steiner Ranch landmarks that lands this section at the top of my “Best of Steiner Ranch” list.

Towne Square is an all-in-one community center that the Steiner residents visit frequently. Amenities include tennis courts, basketball court, swimming pools – including a shaded wade pool for the little ones, indoor/outdoor pavilion for parties and more, a great playground, and sport fields. On the weekends you can see soccer games going on or even the hub of a 5K event. Throughout the year, events like movies in the park and a Halloween Trunk or Treat take place at Towne Square. Towne Square is one of the central places in Steiner Ranch for events and to be so close, yet in a gated section, you are in one primo spot in the River Heights Overlook!
