    прибрежный?

    I've come across the word "прибрежный" twice recently, and can't find it in a dictionary - so, some kind of participle maybe?

    In both cases, it referred to a location, or a geographical feature....

    Would someone translate, please? Tx......

    It's not a participle. It can't be because it's not right in form to be a participle.

    It means "coastal", "riverside"

    Берег = banks, coast
    брежный is the adjectival form, but this isn't used.
    The prefix При- means "by, trans-"

    Like Приволжский - means "By/Around the Volga(river)", or Volga region (adj.)

    Приморский (by the sea)

    Приморский город - A maritime town.

    It is береговой instead.
