Riverbend Park

The Seminole tribe stood its ground here in the midst of a great battle.

In 1838, two important battles of the Second Seminole War happened right in Riverbend Park. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Seminoles resisted U.S. troops and remained unconquered. Explore the battlefields, and be sure to canoe or kayak the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River; its headwaters are located in the park.
