We come here often mainly for hiking around the park with the kids. We rented the canoe once and had a blast!! Spend the day and pack a picnic whether you're hiking, biking, riding your horse or canoeing. Beautiful park.

We love to bike ride (rentals available) for miles on wonderful trails that lead back into areas that have deer and other wildlife, especially at dusk. There are picnic areas, canoe and kayak rentals (short excursions (back and forth on the river) or a longer all day through Jonathan Dickinson State Park for the more adventurous crowd that wants to...

The kayak/canoe ride is really good, you can go all the way to Jonathon Dickinson park if you are in good shape.

A surprise this close to Jupiter. My wife and I prefer more natural trails but this park impressed us with the well maintained mostly paved paths that wind through some very beautiful areas of natural Florida. Hiking or biking are easy and enjoyable here. The sights are wonderful with wildlife present. We saw four deer feeding as we rounded a... More

I had the most amazing birthday kayak trip today with my girlfriend and nephew. Riverbend is truly a must-see. We went to the second dam, winding around the river, enjoying the wildlife and hanging out at the big log. Went swimming by the first dam and by a little beach we found which was closer to the beginning of our... More

Step into nature. I didn't know there were alligators in Jupiter! Definitely worth a visit. Kayak & Bicycle rentals too. Picnic tables beneath little roof huts for shade. Bring a cooler & grill food. REALLY REALLY nice park to spend a couple of hours enjoying the outdoors (aside from the beach of course)!

We a family of four arrived, unsure what to expect, although we were aware that cycles and kayaks were available for rent. We easily found the cycles, and a rather jolly chap in a large van duly took our money in exchange for four bikes. These are not mountain bikes, but a sit up and beg style with a great... More

Beautiful park with a little bit of everything to do. Walk or bike the trails. We went in July, so ran into mosquitoes! Great place for pictures.

I was on a solo trip through the area and thought I would stop off at the Riverbend Park to do some hiking. Hiked several of the trails and found the paths well maintained and lots of scenery. Very nice picnic areas throughout the park along with a place to rent kayaks to travel through their many waterways. Overall had... More
