Farewell Bend Park

1000 Southwest Reed Market Road, Bend, OR 97702, USA

Directions



Farewell Bend is located along the Deschutes River near the base of the Bill Healy Memorial Bridge.

The Deschutes River Trail runs the length of the park and connects the park to the Old Mill District to the northeast, to Riverbend Park across the river and to the South Canyon Bridge to the south.

It has become a popular launching location for float trips on the river in recent years, and a lovely spot to watch nature from birds in the sky to animals in the water and the natural marsh areas.

In the center of the park, a playground in partnership with the Kiwanis features a “lumber mill” theme and is popular for children and families.

A small bouldering and climbing area neighbors the playground. The north end has a small beach area for play and relaxation, and a small boat launch exists at the southern end of the park.

There are also a boardwalk along the river, interpretive signage, two viewing shelters which accommodate 4 each, and a large picnic shelter with a capacity of 36.

5 am to 10 pm
