    Care for Parks, Trails & Off Leash Areas

    Volunteers help keep Bend’s parks, trails and off leash areas beautiful and safe places for everyone to enjoy!

    Adopt-a-Park or Trail or Off Leash Area

    Groups, businesses, schools, families or individuals can adopt a park, off leash area or section of Bend’s urban trail system. Volunteers help care for their adopted space by visiting regularly all year – picking up litter, pulling invasive weeds and keeping an eye out for vandalism, weather damage and potential safety hazards. Volunteers make at least a one year commitment and complete a monthly volunteer activity report.

    Group Park Projects:

    Your group can make a big impact by helping with a landscape maintenance project in a park.

    Opportunities may be available in spring and fall, depending on the weather and vary based on the size of the group and current District needs. Projects are typically 2-3 hours and may include activities such as raking planting areas, spreading bark or playground chips, pulling invasive weeds and picking up litter. BPRD staff provides support for your group’s efforts and supplies any tools or materials needed for the project.

    Uniquely named at Bend Park and Recreation District, Wildside play areas are specially designated natural play areas within parks for free-form play. Imagine a vacant lot where you may have created bike jumps or built forts as a kid. Wildside spaces are outside of pristine habitat or developed areas where it’s okay to be creative. Children are encouraged to dig, stack logs and even create their own forts and other structures with logs, tires, PVC pipe and other materials.
