River Bend Park
- Owned By
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 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. The park is a common take-out spot for commercial rafting companies and for recreational rafters alike. Horse and hiking trails wind through the park-like ribbons of recreational enjoyment. Group picnic sites are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
