map Preserve Features

Riverbend is the largest Preserve in the County's open space system, and along with its sister preserve to the north, Goat Island, Riverbend provides the public with eight miles of almost continuous river-front property.

Heavily-wooded, Riverbend contains ash, oaks, elms, hickory, and bois d'arcs and illustrates how this part of the County once looked.  It is a perfect location for horse-back riding, wildflower exploration, nature study, or hiking through the wildnerness.


Preserve Amenities

There is no formal parking area at this time at the Preserve.  Please park at the top of the levee outside the gate on the north side of Malloy Bridge Road. You must enter on foot.   A series of old ranch roads provide visitors a path for hiking, biking, or horse-back riding.
