    Juniper Park

    Juniper Park recently underwent improvements and renovations.

    The project was completed in two phases. The first phase of construction was completed from 2018-19 with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) parking and access upgrades in the north and south parking lots adjacent to Juniper Swim & Fitness Center. The project improves access to and opportunities for community members of all abilities to enjoy the park.

    The last phase, now complete, includes numerous upgrades to the park. Parking, restroom facilities, paths, and play areas were added or modernized. New park features include:

    • an expanded and relocated playground with unique play options including sound and tactile play elements, spinning and balance play structures, swinging and climbing structures as well. The playground is laid out in a pod style with a concrete pathway connecting the different areas.
    • a 10-foot-wide accessible path leading to the playground
    • an 18-foot shade structure
    • more than two dozen additional parking spaces
    • a connection between the two south parking lots
    • a new 6th street entrance into the park
    • a new restroom – accessible from the park and the outdoor pools at Juniper Swim & Fitness Center

    This is a large park, also featuring a small softball field, horseshoe pits, restrooms and walking trail. Tennis courts are available on a first come first serve basis.

    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.
