PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: For all BPRD parks and trails
It’s summer and you want to play. It’s okay; you can with a few reminders:
  • Distancing is a must when you visit a Bend Park & Recreation District park, trail, recreation center and even the river.
  • Stay six feet from others, indoors and out.
  • If you cannot maintain six feet distance from others, wear a face covering. (Required for ages 5 and up. People with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation.)
  • Wash hands before and after any visit to a park or trail.
  • Visit less popular parks and trails or at less popular times.
  • Go only with your household or small groups. No large groups.
  • Keep dogs on leash; It’s the law in Bend except at designated off leash areas.
  • Bring your own drinking water. Drinking fountains are not available.
  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Learn More.

    Hillside Park is perched on the side of Awbrey Butte and offers panoramic views to the south. The park is adjacent to a City of Bend reservoir site, and consists of two separate parcels. It has both neighborhood park amenities and open space with native vegetation.

    A partially fenced dog off-leash area at Awbrey Reservoir is adjacent to the park’s east side and north of 10th Street.

    More on dog off-leash areas on our Dogs in Parks page.

    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.

    For more information about adopting a park or trail or scheduling a project for your group, contact:

    Natural play areas are park features made of natural elements or inspired by nature, which are meant to provide a different sensory experience than modern plastic and metal play structures. They are designed to invoke more creative, free play.

    In natural areas, kids are encouraged to walk or hop across stumps and logs, race up a cluster of boulders or play tag with friends in a log forest. Using built-in hand water pumps, children can mix sand and water to build sand castles – getting their hands dirty and exploring in the process.
