  • We were there for a wedding. It was a beautiful venue. Many other activities going on but it didn't seem crowded. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Great place for wedding rental. It has so much more to offer and has added new projects for children and adults that are interested in learning about the natural world around them.
  • Awesome place have been many times. Nature trails beautiful scenery concret paths. Learn about animals, insects, nature also has a pavillion. Recently attended a wedding and reception there. Also get a family yearly pass every year.
  • Riverbend is awesome! Beautiful place to walk. Fun events and so educational for kids (and adults as well) love it!
  • Really nice place for kids and adults. We visited during the weekday and the guide took his time to explain all the exhibits and provide insight on the small animals. Small but nice trail for a leisurely stroll.
