Riverbend Park is a wonderful, natural work of art that was opened in the late 1980’s. Crafted along the banks of the mighty Tar, Riverbend Park provides fishing access, canoe access, playground equipment, a picnic shelter, and plenty of shady spots for a nice lunchtime nap.
Riverbend Park is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area and is identified as a conservation area. Park lands are the best use of such lands as development is restricted and the open space provides relief for downstream properties during times of flood.
As with Joyner Park, the picnic shelter is first come first serve, but can be reserved by filling out an application at Town Hall. Riverbend Park is located at the end of S. Church St., located adjacent to the Downtown area of Louisburg.
