    Kiwanis Park is a popular neighborhood park built in 1976 with the help of the Kiwanis Club of Bend.  It hosts many youth and adult softball games during the spring and summer. The park features open turf, a play area, picnic area, a half court basketball court and a small baseball/softball field. The park has a good view of Pilot Butte making it a popular neighborhood spot to watch the July 4th fireworks.

    After more than 30 years in service, Kiwanis Park got a makeover. Updates include new sidewalks, the picnic plaza, improved access to the ball field and playground, as well as replacing portions of the irrigation system.

    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.
