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.

We were here for a wedding. Great venue with lots of open space and huge oaks that made for a good backdrop. Visited the park a day earlier so we could spend some additional time. 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

A tricky enterance (with construction in the area) but easy to get to and worth the stop. Relaxing walking trails with plenty of wild life and foilage to see. We observed different water birds, racoons, deer and an alligator and could have seen more if we weren't pressed for closing time. We saw horseback riders and kayakers as well as... More

Dusk is the best time to see deer, peafowl, turkeys, etc. The trails are well marked and beautifuly maintained.

A friend from Colorado recently asked for a suggestion for an afternoon hike that would be a snapshot of what South Florida hiking is all about. As a regular visitor to Riverbend(several times a month) I didn't hesitate to enthusiastically recommend this nearby jewel! Like the facets of a fine diamond, this park shines in any light. Canoe/kayak rentals, bicycles,... More

If I reviewed this wonderful preserve before it's worth another visit. Riverbend Park in Jupiter Florida is a hidden gem only a few miles from downtown Jupiter and less than 1 mile from I-95! We walked 5.6 miles on several trails on a beautiful day. We saw 3 deer, 2 very large alligators, countless exotic birds, a raccoon and 12... More
