The Town of River Bend is a residential community 5 miles east of New Bern. River Bend is beautifully situated near the Trent River and various canals that allow opportunities for waterfront living. Like most of New Bern’s communities, River Bend is known to be a community built around a well-manicured golf course.
The semi-private River Bend Golf & Country Club is central to the community’s development. The 18-hole golf course has been consistently voted as “Simply the Best Golf Course in New Bern” for eight years. The Country Club also houses a swimming pool and tennis courts to assure that homeowners never run out of activities to enjoy. Homeowners can also wine and dine at the Grille Room or hold larger events at the Banquet Room, which is a perfect spot for a wedding.
The community offers a wide array of recreational amenities available for the enjoyment of residents of all ages. Taking advantage of its convenient access to the Trent River, River Bend recently launched its kayak/canoe facilities. Two spacious playgrounds are open for the younger residents to have fun and play. There’s also a skateboard park, a basketball court and a volleyball court where teens can socialize and meet new friends. For the more adventurous and active residents, there’s a walking and fitness trail in the area as well. Indeed, there is something for everyone in River Bend, even man’s best friend! A dog park is available for your furry friends and is located between Town Hall and Ritter Field.
