BPRD River Clean Up Day 2017 - 1 of 104 (54)

Bend’s beautiful parks host a wide variety of activities and events throughout the year ranging from community-wide cultural events to individuals relaxing in their favorite park. Bend Park and Recreation District oversees, maintains and develops parks, trails and open space throughout Bend.

Park Services cares for places where people play, learn and grow, and protects our natural and cultural resources for the enjoyment of community residents. As we continue to acquire and develop additional parkland and recreational facilities, we are prioritizing expanding our services to operate and maintain them at the quality level our community expects. We also recognize the need to provide a higher level of service to the users of our parks and trails, so that their recreational experiences are positive and enjoyable.

If you have any questions regarding park maintenance, please contact Park Services at 541-388-5435.

Park Rules & Regulations:

We are proud of the parks, trails and facilities available and we ask that park users help us keep them safe and enjoyable for everyone. Please take a moment to review BPRD’s rules and regulations page.
