PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: For all BPRD parks and trails
The parks and trails are calling 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.
