Comprehensive Plan

Planning for Play

Be a part of the future of Bend’s park, recreation and trail system!

The Park and Recreation District is underway with an important project. The end result will be the community’s plan for the next 10 years of new parks, extended trails and new places to workout, play and socialize. The new plan will ultimately help the District prioritize future facility and program investments.
