Stone Creek Park

61531 SE Stone Creek Lane Bend, OR 97702

Directions



Stone-Creek-Park-ShelterStone Creek is located in southeast Bend and directly west of Silver Rail Elementary School. This park is defined by basalt lava features which form a mini butte-like natural area in the center of the park with sweeping views southeast to China Hat Butte and even the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.

A majority of the six-plus acres remains natural, but accessible through unpaved trails.

The park features a small bike pump track, a small skate spot, trails, a picnic shelter, picnic tables, open turf and natural play areas with play features. The natural play areas feature sand boxes with “log steppers,” a water trough, a mini “excavator” and smoothed logs for unstructured, creative play.

5 am to 10 pm

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.

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.

Bike Skills Course: There are smaller, beginner bike skills courses featuring dirt trails with obstacles – also known to cyclists as log skinnies, corduroy, boardwalk and armored trail features to develop your skills.

Stone Creek Park’s Skate Spot is open from dawn until dusk in dry conditions. This skate spot is a mini-skate park with three main features: box, flat rail and ramp

Park Rules & Etiquette

Please note that there’s a high volume of skaters so be prepared to share the park. Practice control and courtesy so that everyone can enjoy the park safely. To help users skate safely, the District has set forth use rules and guidelines including encouraging users to wear protective equipment, such as helmets and elbow pads, as well as to practice control and keep the surface clean.

Free-style BMX bike and scooter riders are not allowed in the park. Bike and scooter riders are encouraged to use the original skatepark at the northwest corner of Ponderosa Park. The district has no immediate plans for the original park and it is likely to remain a multi-purpose area for some time. Learn more about other skateparks and skating rules.
