Current Status:

Alpenglow Park construction is beginning in October 2020. BPRD will work in partnership with Nativity Woodlot and Firewood program here in Bend to remove 60 trees from the park site. The program’s volunteers chop, sort, load and haul donated firewood, making it available to low income individuals and families in our community. Removing the trees will take approximately 2 weeks and activity will be consolidated in the Southeast area of the park site that will become the lawn and parking area for the park.

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.
