Nice clean park. We had a surprise party in one of the pavilions. We did not reserve on in advance but there were many to chose from. Next time I look forward to canoeing around the river. It looks so nice and peaceful. Lots of families and it was a nice quiet park.

This was my second kayak trip with the girls, and boy, I was not disappointed. The first half of the 8-mile trip started at Riverbend and meandered through a beautiful canopy of oaks, pond cypress, and flowers and fauna. It was like traveling through the "land that time forgot." I almost expected monkeys to leap from the trees! The highlight... More

Been there several times, it's a nice kayaking adventure. It's a smooth ride, with a great view. From the 5 times I've been there I've seen gators 4 times, turtle several. It's pretty fun, I've you like outdoors visit this place.

We travel by RV so we can cover a lot of territory without backtracking. We bring our own bikes and kayaks and thus do not depend on places being open or convenient rentals. This river is a very easy one to navigate with or without the map. It meanders along and requires minimum effort so beginners would like it. Turtles,... More

Not far off the interstate, and out from Jupiter, Fl. Great walking and biking trails. Also places to kayak and canoe. We even saw an alligator (well away from walking trails), plenty of birds and no problem with bugs or other pests. We walked about 5-6 miles both times we visited and had a great time

I went to Riverbend Park with the same intent that I go to every park in Florida - I want to put my camera to use and capture a few really good landscape and wildlife photos. Riverbend Park didn't really give me either of those, put it did make me see a place that every family in the area should... More

the river is beautiful and there are kayaks and canoes for rent.. there are a couple small waterfalls-- the first is easily navigated going downstream (we didn't get to the second). But upstream the dock ramp where you portage your kayak/canoe is too steep -- getting out and getting back in -- and we capsized trying to get back down... More

I kayaked here last week. I saw lots of birds, turtles, and gators. Great workout but not too challenging if you are in decent shape. Absolutely quiet and beautiful surroundings. Seeing the gators was so cool. Best kayak trip I have ever taken in PBC - cant wait to go again!
