Water & Wave Conditions

Information is at Your Fingertips!

Know before you go! To help users know what to expect before heading down to the Bend Whitewater Park, we provide regular Wave Reports on Facebook. These reports help you understand river water flows and what type of whitewater user each wave is currently set up for.

Please note that while the pneumatic bladders in the center channel of the Bend Whitewater Park allow us to manipulate the river to create waves and rapids, we do not control the flow of the river. This means an intended wave feature may be different than what is expected or intended without notice. We try our best to let you know when flows fluctuate and effect waves however, the Deschutes River is a natural body of water and can change.

Beginning Dec. 5, 2016, the Bend Whitewater Park will be closed for winter construction work. Reopening is expected in spring 2017.

Bend Whitewater Park shared Bend-La Pine Schools's photo.

Important update on Bend schools. Several buildings have potential roof load issues. If you have a student, be sure to "like" BLSD for more updates. BPRD appreciates the efforts to keep everyone safe.
