American River Parkway - River Bend Park Area



River Bend Park is one of Sacramento’s oldest county parks. A long central road paralleling the river links you to this park’s many recreation facilities. Wild turkeys and deer rustle in the grass beneath young oaks, while the bright green, carefully cared-for picnic area is a delicious place to stop for lunch. River Bend Park was one of the original three areas along the Parkway purchased by the County. 

River Bend Park is a welcome stop along the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, just across the Harold Richey Bicycle Bridge from William B. Pond Park. The bridge offers a spectacular view of the American River.
