Rockridge Park was designed with a minimal footprint to maintain over 60 percent of the original terrain as natural space which makes you feel like you’re miles outside of town.
The natural play area is a central experience to the park. This play area features a Juniper “log forest” where children can navigate smoothed and repurposed trees, which were harvested from local Bend parks. Children can also create their own natural adventures on log steppers, boulder scrambles and a climbing tree.
Within the park, there is a small playground, a large picnic shelter, picnic tables, drinking fountains, seasonal restrooms, paved and on-street parking.
Rockridge Park’s skatepark is open from dawn until dusk in dry conditions.
The approximately 11,000-square-foot skatepark includes:
- “Lunar-landscape” design
- Street & bowl features
- Soft “drop-in” entrances and exit
- Seasonal restrooms, picnic shelters and other amenities close to the skatepath.
- Bike and motorized vehicles are not permitted in the skatepark.
