Riverbend Park has high visitation weekends and holidays, usually between 9:30am and 4:30pm. During high visitation, there may be significant delays entering the park. When the park fills, entry to the park will close until enough parking spaces become available. During these delays, vehicles may not park near the entrance sign or along Jeffery road to wait. Consider returning at a different time. Please respect our park neighbors. If the entrance road is backed up, do not stop on Jeffery Rd or near the entrance sign to wait. Riverbend Park staff will be working to direct traffic and parking, please be respectful and follow their instructions.
