The Park Stewardship program provides park visitors with information and resources and fosters appropriate park rules making parks and trails safer for all to enjoy. As part of this mission, they also manage community events in our parks. Whether working with park visitors one-on-one or at a large festival, stewards are always trying to build positive relationships with citizens and enhance connectivity with the District.
The small team of park stewards addresses issues such as unleashed dogs, pet waste, river safety, alcohol and drug use, smoking, vandalism and other matters in the parks. The stewards work in parks and trails seven days a week with support from Bend Patrol Services.
