Visit Riverbend

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARiverbend, the home of Ipswich River Watershed Association, is a great place to visit.  The 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.

We recently acquired an additional 4 acres of land along the banks of the river increasing the size of Riverbend to 20 acres! Come check out our new trails and explore the remnants of what was once one of the most renowned formal gardens in Massachusetts!

Members use our boats for free anytime!
