Beautiful setting.

A great park to walk, bike, picnic, bird watch, horseback (bring your own!) canoe or kayak. A peaceful place to enjoy nature.

Beautiful, well maintained old Florida park. Canoe and kayak rentals, peaceful walks. Good parking and a nice little drive-around road so that you can see the fauna and flora without walking if you wish.

We took our bikes to this park. Loved that it was free with free parking. The trails are graded trails and very easy to ride. It was easy to bike side by side. Plenty of shaded trails. Loved seeing a Florida hammock and realizing this is what old Florida looked like. We did not kayak, but looks like something we... More

This park has it all. The trails are full of all types of plants and wildlife including deer. Great walking trails, exercise, and even events on weekends. Even has an old saw mill. The park and parking is free, Canoe rentals also available. Fun for the whole family.

Riverbend Park is an awesome place to bike ride. There are so many paths that even when the parking lot is full there is always an open path somewhere. The paths are all named and signs always point to the exit to help one not get too turned around. We have seen alligators, wild turkey, all sorts of birds, snakes,... More

Riverbend Park is experiencing a lot of renovation at this time. Even so, the trails are open and it is a shady quiet place to walk or bike ride.

Lots of hiking trails and also canoes (you can rent a canoe in the park). Park just added (opened on Dec. 10th) a larger new... More

The Riverbend Park is an ever expanding walkway along the inland waterway. It ambules along the waterfront in Jupiter. It starts near the Juno/Jupiter town line and moves from Aia to a mostly wood deck/concrete pathway which runs behind the businesses and buildings that front the road. It meanders along the waterway where you can enjoy the sites of nature(osprey,eagles,storks,herrins,egrits,etc.... More

We walked the trails looking for animals and hoping to see an alligator. Unfortunately we didn't get lucky enough to spot a gator, but we still had fun. The trails are packed gravel and we had no problem taking our stroller on them. Trails are shared among bikers and walkers and even a small section where they're shared with horseback... More
