Connecting Youth with the Outdoors
While many Bend residents enjoy easy outdoor recreation access, there are unseen barriers to the outdoors for some people in our community. Learn how BPRD is reducing barriers and developing appreciation of the outdoors for more residents by utilizing recreation scholarships, bilingual staff and grant help from the Children’s Forest of Central Oregon and the U.S. Forest Service.

The District partnered with the Central Oregon Irrigation District (COID) to provide a trail connection at Brookswood Blvd. An undercrossing links the trail along the canal road and the now buried COID pipe to the Deschutes River Trail. The District will continue improvements along the canal road including new trail surfacing and wayfinding signs from Blakely Road to the Deschutes River Trail. The most recent improvements were completed from near Blakely Road to American Lane.
Just north of the Brookswood Blvd. and Rock Bluff Lane intersection, where the canal crosses Brookswood in southwest Bend.
