My wife and I spent about two hours hiking through this lovely forest and well maintained park in Jupiter. It was calm, quiet and a gorgeous setting. We didn't see many birds, but then we were there at mid-day. This park is a great escape from in-season Jupiter traffic.

It was my first time kayaking this park & it was a good experience. It's a good location & so much to offer. You can rent a kayak for double $45 & $35 for single for a whole day. You can rent a bike too or just trail hiking. We enjoyed our kayak adventure, so serene & beautiful trees. There... More

Was disappointed to discover that on a beautiful day, everything was closed. Unable to rent bike or kayak. Apparently park services are closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Drove around the park. Lots of construction at main entrance

There is a bit of construction going on at the moment, but not a big deal. It is so fun to see the park on two wheels and feel the coolness beneath the canopy of trees even on a hot, sunny day. The park was a bit dry due to the drought and not as lush as other visits there.... More

I love this park. We are so lucky to have Riverbend Park in Jupiter. Lots of times I see peacocks in turkey and there. I love being able to canoe down the Loxahatchee and launch my canoe inside this park. Lots of bike riding and also people that live in Jupiter Farms ride their horses through, a lovely park. Hope...

Perfect place to enjoy a walk while watching the deer and squirrels play. There are bridges and loop paths to enjoy God's creation: pure nature

I've done this trip tiwice before. The river runs thru some beautiful undeveloped areas. It's somewhat challenging but not overly so. If you have a serious phobia about the possibility of seeing alligators, then don't go. I saw only two small ones and lots of turtles sunning themselves on branches.

We arrived around 1Pm and rented bikes - quite a deal at $15 for the afternoon. The crushed-stone trails are generally well-marked and mostly flat with kiosks containing the map placed at strategic locations. To be on the safe side, the rental rep took us over to the nearby kiosk and recommended we take a photo of the trail map... More

I live in the next town to the north and had never heard of this beautiful free park. I launched my kayaks there and headed towards the dams. You instantly get sent back in time to the real feel of old Florida. Dense woods of old oaks, cypress trees, and sable palms bending over the water. The river gets narrow,... More
