Current Operations FAQs

Updated Wednesday, May 5, 2021: Here’s the latest to know about current operations. Whether it’s your first time to the facility or you are frequent visitor, you’re encouraged to check this page regularly for operational changes.

When can I see activity schedules and make reservations?

Since the state will now be reviewing county’s risk levels on a weekly basis, we’ve adjusted the activity schedule and reservation window accordingly. Schedules and reservations will be available 3 days prior to an activity. This helps avoid possible cancellations due to quick adjustments to the county’s risk level. We will evaluate and adjust this window as needed moving forward.

May I still use the Larkspur Fitness Center and "On Your Own" sessions with a class reservation?

Yes, but reservations are strongly recommended for the fitness center, cycle or water workout on your own sessions with drop-ins allowed if space is available.

Lap swim, family swim and fitness classes require advance reservations.

Will “On Your Own” cycle and swim classes still be available?

Yes. Reservations are strongly recommended for fitness center, cycle or water workout on your own sessions with drop-ins allowed if space is available.

Will Insurance-Reimbursed Programs still be available during High Risk?

Yes. Insurance-Reimbursed Programs will still be able to make reservations at Larkspur Community Center, Juniper Swim and Fitness Center and The Pavilion for swim and fitness programs.

What kind of face coverings are required?

Face Coverings

All visitors 5 years and older entering a BPRD facility must wear a face covering. The face coverings must cover the mouth and nose and must be worn at all times in all indoor spaces, including indoor pools – except when swimming.

  • Face coverings are required when exercising indoors.
  • If a medical condition or disability prevents a person from wearing a face covering, let our staff know to consider an accommodation.
  • The Oregon Health Authority does not recommend wearing plastic face shields alone. While face shields can be very good at blocking droplets, they are not as good at stopping aerosols that can go around the shield. OHA recommends face shields only be used on a limited basis, for example when talking to someone who is deaf or hard of hearing and needs to read lips to communicate.
  • Clear face shields are strongly recommended for water exercise classes.
  • Please bring your own mask. A limited supply of disposable masks are available if you forget.

Face Covering Non-Compliance and Exclusions

Both your mouth and nose must be covered at all times except during swimming or water exercise (face shields are recommended during water exercise). If there is non-compliance, staff will provide a reminder, a warning and then exclusion for the day without a refund. This is for everyone’s health and safety. Thank you for wearing your face covering properly.

Learn more about OHA face covering requirements online: https://govstatus.egov.com/or-oha-face-coverings

How is physical distancing being maintained?

In accordance with state guidelines, activities are distanced with extra measures to reduce contact with staff and/or other patrons.

BPRD facilities have implemented a number of precautions to maintain social distancing, including:

BPRD Facilities

  • Increased distancing, marked areas and one-way traffic flow.
  • All activity times are offset so that classes don’t arrive or exit at the same time.
  • 100% air-exchange in indoor spaces to circulate air.

Classes:

  • Reduced class sizes through state-mandated occupancy formulas.
  • Additional outdoor classes and sessions and workout spaces.

Water Fitness and Lap Swim:

  • Reserved lap swim lane times.
  • Lap swimming is restricted to two person per lane.
  • A queuing system is set for people waiting for their lap swim time.
  • Water fitness classes have designated spaces, including buffers between lap swimmers.

Family Swim:

  • Swim groups limited to single-households and max group sizes of 10 visitors. An adult is responsible to maintain distance from other groups.
  • Designated pool deck areas for each group.

How can I make reservations or register? Is in-person available?

Reservations and registrations are available online at register.bendparksandrec.org or by phone at (541) 388-1133.

Why reservations?

With advanced reservations, the facility can remain within the capacity limitations required by Oregon Health Authority and maintain proper distancing for patrons and staff. The advanced reservation also saves you a space rather than being turned away or waiting in line for an opening. You can register up to three days in advance to fit your workout into your schedule. Reservations remain open until 15 minutes prior to an activity for available openings.

If I’m unable to register online, how can I get help?

Customer service staff will be available by phone at (541) 389-7665 during all operating hours to assist you with the learning the registration system or answering questions. If you can only pay with cash please speak to a customer service staff over the phone for assistance.

Customer Service Hours:

Mon - Fri: 6:00 am  - 8:00 pm
Sat: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Sun: 1:00 - 6:00 pm
Hours are subject to change without notice.

What is being done to ensure cleanliness and sanitation?

BPRD facilities receive a thorough cleaning nightly. Restrooms are cleaned at least twice daily and staff are regularly disinfecting high touch points including between groups. Juniper has automated chemical controllers and feed systems that measure and adjust chlorine and pH levels on an ongoing basis.

How would patrons be notified in the event of potential exposures?

What is BPRD’s response if/when a COVID-19 case is confirmed at a fitness and swim facility?
If and when Bend Park and Recreation District is contacted by Deschutes County Health Department about a confirmed COVID-19 case,  we work quickly with the Deschutes County Health Department to determine notification needs. We provide them with information related to the suspected or confirmed case, including providing contact information for patrons and employees who may have sustained direct exposure with a confirmed case. This is why registration and check-in is key. It’s possible that if an exposure is deemed “low risk” by the county contact tracer, notification may be done by BPRD out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of patrons, staff and volunteers.

What should I expect for notification if I was near a confirmed case?
According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), risk exposure is contact within 6 feet of individuals for a total of 15 minutes or more. The county public health team’s job is to assess the level of exposure and risk, and to then contact people as appropriate. If they determine that there is a risk to you, please be responsive to contact from Deschutes County Health Department and follow the guidance they provide you. If you are not contacted by the health department, it means they do not believe your contact level warrants further action.

Lap swim, family swim and fitness classes require advance reservations.

Why are dry-side fitness programs at Juniper temporarily relocated to Larkspur?

Indoor fitness classes and amenities (including cycle studio equipment) are available at Larkspur Community Center from April 5 to mid-June. This allows efficiency with the indoor pool renovation project at Juniper. We look forward to resuming indoor fitness activities at Juniper in time for the summer.

Lap Swim FAQs

Updated Wednesday, May 5, 2021:

Can lap swimmers share lanes? What if we’re in the same household?

All lanes will have up to two swimmers allowed per lane.  All reservations should be made in advance.

Patrons will be able to make multiple reservations during lap swim sessions for any number of members in their households. Lane selection is first-come, first-served. There are no lane assignments designated with reservations; so, lane selection is subject to availability when you arrive. We can’t guarantee that you will share the same lane, we can only guarantee two reservations for the session.
If you want to share a lane with a household member, you’ll need to arrive together promptly and find an unshared lane.

How do two swimmers share the lap lanes?

Lanes will be designated by speed markers: slow, medium, fast.  Swimmers swim on one side of the lane and stop on one end of the pool only; whichever end you enter is your stopping end. One swimmer will enter the pool at the end of the pool and the other will enter from the side of the pool at the ladders closest to the bulkhead. 

If I can’t make it to my lap swim time or class can I transfer to a different day or get a refund?

You can receive a full credit for reservations cancelled 24 hours or more in advance. The credit can be used for future reservations of any park and recreation district activity. Cancellations can be made online or by calling customer service at (541) 389-7275. No credit or refund will be issued if cancelled less than 24 hours in advance of the reservation. For Frequent User Monthly Passholders, a no-show fee equivalent to the daily drop-in fee will be charged to the passholder’s account if reservations are not cancelled 24-hours in advance.

What is the pool temperature?

The 50m pool is being kept at a slightly higher temperature to accommodate the water exercise classes during the indoor pool renovation.  It is currently 82 degrees.

Family and Recreation Swim FAQs

Family Swim and Recreation Swim are available at Larkspur Community Center.
