Completed in 2009, Riverbend Park is a special community gathering place that celebrates the Deschutes River, provides a special events venue, provides public river access and conserves the native riparian landscape. This riverfront park features large open lawn areas, a sandy beach, public restrooms, a picnic shelter and fully accessible walking trails.
Riverbend Park is also home to BPRD’s district office and community room. The park was designed to accommodate larger events and can be reserved for a variety of uses.
The Deschutes River Trail connections traveling through the park include a 10-foot wide paver path and an adjacent soft surface running trail. From here, connections can be made to Farewell Bend Park across the river and upstream to the south canyon walking trails.
A fenced dog off-leash area is located adjacent to Riverbend Park on the land owned by William Smith Properties.
