Visit Riverbend

Native_Plant_Garden_2011_with_sign_lilies_DKRiverbend, the home of Ipswich River Watershed Association, is a great place to visit. Look for our sign at 143 County Rd (Route 1A) in Ipswich. Gardens, trails, dock and property are open from sunrise to sunset for paddling, walking, birding and gaining the peace of mind that comes from a beautiful stretch of water.

Members use our boats for free, anytime! Canoes and kayaks are right by the river, ready to be launched from our dock. First come, first served. Reservations are not required to paddle what many people say is the most beautiful and least frequented stretch of the river.
