July 27, 2010

Affiliated with the RR Company of America, LLC, the City Club of Lafayette, which is located in the Village of River Ranch, was founded in 1978. Located in downtown Lafayette until 2002, the club then moved to River Ranch as the primary tenant of the Town Square. With a long list of amenities, the City Club has quickly established itself as the heartbeat of social life in River Ranch. A full-service health club, City Club provides cardiovascular equipment, strength training equipment, exercise classes, personal trainers, whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms, and a Mind & Body Studio. The club’s day spa, Riverspa, provides members with manicures, pedicures, facials, and massages, among other services. In addition, the members-only City Club Grill & Bar prepares creative and award-winning meals. For the kids, the City Club provides summer camps, youth fitness programs, a kids’ club, and a nursery. Food and wine enthusiasts are invited to join the City Club’s Wine Connoisseur’s Club, which hosts seven-dinner seasons and an elegant gala to celebrate the new year. Each dinner is intricately themed and professionally paired with wines that complement the unique menu. At the end of each event, members are able to purchase additional bottles of the wines that they especially enjoyed. Most recently, a Wine Connoisseur Club dinner featured South African wines. A highlight of the City Club is its gorgeous pool, which is equipped with distinctive water fountains and is open year-round. The club staff provides swimming lessons and can also help you design an exercise plan that will maximize the impact of water resistance. The pool is available for parties for both adults and children, and the club’s restaurant provides high-quality catering for any event from a birthday party to an evening poolside gathering.
