Discover the Outdoors:
Connecting Youth with the Outdoors
While many Bend residents enjoy easy outdoor recreation access, there are unseen barriers to the outdoors for some people in our community. Learn how BPRD is reducing barriers and developing appreciation of the outdoors for more residents by utilizing recreation scholarships, bilingual staff and grant help from the Children’s Forest of Central Oregon and the U.S. Forest Service.Learn more.

BPRD’s Americans with Disabilities Act ADA Transition Plan establishes the District’s ongoing commitment to serving the needs of the community by providing universal accessibility to its facilities and programs. The ADA Transition Plan will be used to help guide future planning and implementation of accessibility improvements in BPRD’s parks, trails, open spaces and buildings. The plan is a dynamic, living document that will evolve over time. As projects are completed, project schedules evolve, or cost estimates change, staff will update the ADA Transition Plan to reflect those changes.
