Visit Riverbend

Welcome_flag_Nov_2015 009Riverbend, the home of Ipswich River Watershed Association, is a great place to visit. Look for our sign at 143 County Rd (Route 1A) in Ipswich. Gardens, trails, dock and property are open from sunrise to sunset for paddling, walking, birding and gaining the peace of mind that comes from a beautiful stretch of water.
