East Bank Village is a vibrant neighborhood community located in the heart of downtown South Bend. Laden with parks, recreation and retail amenities, The East Bank Village is an urban sanctuary that winds along the St. Joseph River with pedestrian friendly walking and bike paths.

The East Bank Village hosts the vitality and accessibility of city life but breathes the unity and pride of a small neighborhood community. The new desirable residential construction by Weiss Homes, compliment the quaint historic architecture that is dotted throughout the Howard Park Historic District.  New architecture and landscape design is anchored by the past workmanship of historic structures in the Queen Anne, Mediterranean Revival, Gothic Revival, American Foursquare, Prairie, Craftsman Bungalow, and California Bungalow Styles. Two are associated with Frank Lloyd Wright and two with the Studebaker family.

The Zion United Church of Christ showcases the centerpiece of this neighborhood’s historic district. The East Bank Village gives the mementos of history but offers residents the grace and peaceful luxury of living in a small neighborhood community.

A favorite river walk between two parks invites visitors to hear the sounds of rushing rapids coming from the East Race Waterway. The first artificial whitewater course built in North America boasts the sight of colorful kayakers mastering the whitewater course below. The laugher of families rafting down the course makes the East Race Waterway and Seitz Park a favorite place to picnic, playground and attend free summer concerts.
