Friends of Riverbend Park

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.

Thank You For All Your Support!!!  We Raised Over $2000 to Fund Children's Activity Tables in the Visitor Center

Tailored to attract the attention of children of various ages and parents, activity tables will allow them to explore nature interactively. Displays would change seasonally and address both historical heritage and natural significance of Riverbend Park.  Examples include learning about soil texture through interactive play with sand, silt and clay, or learning about animal adaptations by examining fur, snake shed and turtle shells with magnifying glasses.
