The Florida Forestry Service in conjunction with the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department will be conducting a series of prescribed burns at Riverbend Park between March 6 - August 31, 2023. A prescribed burn is an intentional fire set under carefully controlled conditions to achieve certain land management objectives. The objectives of these burns are to reduce dead and dense vegetation, to improve habitat for wildlife and restore nutrients to the soil. Planning is under way to ensure that the burn will be done safely and efficiently. Details​

Surround yourself with the beauty of old Florida

Take a step back in time and enjoy walking, bicycling, riding, or canoeing through beautiful and historic Riverbend Park. From the ancient Indian middens, through the Seminole War Battles, to present day restoration, see Florida as the first settlers did. Nearly 10 miles of hiking/biking trails, 7 miles of equestrian trails and 5 miles of canoeing/kayaking trails allow for hours of enjoyment. Stroll along the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River, visit the Cracker Farmstead, and picnic in the shade under a Seminole chickee.

Riverbend Park is a wildlife management area; pets are NOT allowed with the exception of service animals as defined by the ADA​.
