Project Overview

This 37-acre park site is characterized by semi-arid high desert vegetation with mature stands of Ponderosa Pine, Junipers and a basalt ridge designated as an area of special interest by the City of Bend. This new community park will provide opportunities for a wide array of recreation activities for all ages and four-legged friends while r
etaining natural characteristics of the existing landscape.  Design plans include a splash pad, dog park, open lawn space, an event space, and demonstration garden.

There is a contract in place for construction of the park with project completion estimated for spring/summer 2022. The installation of the COID bridge is underway as the bridge was set in early January, retaining walls are being constructed, and pathway construction will follow.  Crews have begun site grading and construction fencing has been placed.

Current Status:

Alpenglow Park construction began October 2020. BPRD worked in partnership with Nativity Woodlot and Firewood program here in Bend to remove 60 trees from the park site and use them for low income individuals and families in our community.  The construction contract for the building of the park has been approved and the COID bridge installation along 15th street north of the project site is currently in process, along with site grading and other preparatory actions for the property’s development.

What construction is going on right now?

Alpenglow Park construction is underway

  • Initial tree removal – October 2020
  • Construction – Early 2021-2022

For safety, please stay clear of the work area. Thank you for patience as we build your new park.

Why must trees be removed?

This area will be developed into an open lawn space and parking area. More than 100 new trees will be planted as part of the new park construction.

The park will retain 90% of existing trees for natural beauty. 60 trees will be removed as part of the initial work in October and donated to the Nativity Woodlot and Firewood program to be shared with local families in need.

For safety, please stay clear of the work area. Thank you for patience as we build your new park.
