Welcome to River Bend!

We invite you to explore this, our official website, filled
with information for residents and visitors alike.

Small in size, and young in age, the Town of River Bend is
living proof that great things come in small packages.
Chartered in 1981, River Bend offers a variety of housing
styles, with many homes offering waterfront on the Trent
River and Plantation Canal, or along the fairways of the
privately owned River Bend Country Club. A progressive
community of approximately 3,100 residents, the Town of
River Bend is a great place to visit, and even a better place
to live.

We invite you to visit our community. Located in Eastern
North Carolina, River Bend offers boaters the opportunity
to cruise the Trent River or make your way to the
Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Recreational
opportunities including golf, hiking, fishing, biking, and
beach access are within or just a short drive from the
tranquility of River Bend. Just a few miles away is the
historic City of New Bern, offering shopping, dining, and
other amenities. Spend a little time with us and you will
see why people enjoy calling River Bend their home.
Vision Statement

River Bend is a dynamic and uniquely located waterfront and
golfing community well prepared to benefit from the area’s
historical and natural resources. By protecting its assets and
actively fostering a diverse multi-aged population, the River
Bend community will continue to be a safe, attractive place to
live and will be competitively positioned in the broader area’s
economic and population growth.
