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 retaining natural characteristics of the existing landscape.
Design plans include a splash pad, dog park, open lawn space, an event space, and demonstration garden.
As of June 24, 2022, the park is mostly completed and open to the public, but the playground area is still an active construction zone. Pending inspection, it is expected to be open in early July or sooner.
37 acres at 61049 SE 15th Street

Alpenglow Park construction is nearing completion with opening slated for early summer 2022. The COID bridge installation along 15th street north of the project site is complete, and the new bridge over the railroad tracks into the Hidden Hills neighborhood was set at the end of April.
The Alpenglow Community Park’s art piece has been selected and we’re overjoyed with the public input! Troy Pillow was selected to create the Zenith sculpture. On behalf of Art in Public Places, BPRD and the BPR Foundation, thank you to the more than 1,400 people who submitted input online and in person.
