About River Bend

Mayor's Welcome

I extend this welcome from the River Bend Town Council and our citizens. River Bend is a residential community that has a private golf course which was central to the Town's development. River Bend also has a navigable canal and frontage on the Trent River. Home buyers will find a wide variety of home architecture and a corresponding range of home prices in River Bend. Many first time visitors remark that they find River Bend to be a very attractive community.

Our police department patrols 24/7. River Bend employs well-trained professionals to operate our own water and wastewater utilities. You can read in detail about the utilities on our Water and Wastewater web page. The members of the Council and the Town staff work as a team to provide professional service to residents.

Come visit us and, if you are searching for a new home in this mild climate southern state, our hope is that you might consider River Bend.
