The People for Riverbend Park Trust continues to operate during the COVID-19 crisis; check here for regular updates on the status of the park and ways you can continue to support us.

6/20/20 – Riverbend Park now open on Saturdays


As memorialized by law, DCR closes Memorial Drive to traffic on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. from the last Sunday in April through the second Sunday in November.

We are delighted to report that in addition to the usual closing on Sundays, DCR announced that Memorial Drive will now be closed to vehicle traffic on summer Saturdays as well, during the same hours (11 a.m. until 7 p.m.), offering  more opportunities to get outdoors while still social distancing.

6/16/20 – the playlot is open!


DCR announced the opening of playgrounds to the public and opened the Riverbend Park playlot.  Please note that we removed the sandbox and other shared toys for safety and health reasons.  Please bring your own toys if you wish!  Thank you also for bringing them back home with you.

While you're there, check out the flowers in bloom! The lilies are especially pretty right now.
