Friends of Riverbend Park (FORB) is a 501c(3) non-profit citizens group dedicated to the responsible stewardship and preservation of the undisturbed natural beauty at Riverbend Park on the Potomac River and to safeguarding this Park as a natural 'classroom' for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all park visitors.
The park may be reached by taking Beltway Exit 44 (Georgetown Pike Rt. 193) west 4.5 miles to right on Riverbend Rd. to Right on Jeffery Rd. Proceed approximately 1 mile to the park's main entrance (Potomac Hills St.) on the right, or 1.5 miles on Jeffery Rd to the Nature Center entrance and parking area.
Please Help Us Raise Money To Support Riverbend's Summer Camp Interns!
In 2016, FORB contributed $12,000 to pay the salaries of five summer interns. The park ran a total of 35 different camps, each of which requires one park staff member and one summer intern. FORB's support of these summer interns has enabled Riverbend to minimize costs to the public and offer a wider variety of programs.
