Harmon Park

1100 Northwest Harmon Boulevard, Bend, OR, United States

Directions



Acquired by Bend Kiwanis with a donation from New York philanthropist, William Harmon, this park is located along the Deschutes River across the river from Drake Park. Park features include two softball fields (used as a soccer field in the fall), restrooms and a playground. The Hobby Hut and Boat House now function as an Outdoor Center, the meeting place for many of our outdoor programs.

In 2000, this park underwent a major rehabilitation, including a new irrigation system, paver sidewalks, updated playground area, sports backstops and other features to enhance the visitor’s experience. Harmon Park is also known as the “Boat Park” by the community. This is due to the much-loved boat that has been a longtime fixture in the playground. .

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.
