We drove into this rather new park in Bend to check out the 159 acres of green grass, large sports field, paved & unpaved trails, 4 baseball/softball fields, fishing ponds, restrooms, child playground, picnic tables, dog-off leased areas, pickle ball, disc golf & a large parking lot.
There isn’t much shade, there are some trees that are still rather immature except for near the southern softball field where you can seek shade under a good stand of small maple trees. Otherwise consider yourself exposed.
Plenty of paved trails for individuals wanting to walk (wheelchair accessible) & take in the sights & enjoy clean air & space. Could easily walk several miles.
Can be very hot & uncomfortable if it is a hot day. No shade in the parking lot. Noticed quickly that it can also be very windy
Good views of the Cascades Mountains as you sit in the covered bleachers while watching your kids play softball. There was a small snack shack when some soft ball games are going but don’t count on it except for snacks.
Virtually a food desert in that part of town. Nearest food is 10 minutes away on 27th Street @ Butler Market Road or heading West towards downtown 3rd Street, Cascade View Mall.
Considered a “community park” in NW Bend between Purcell, Butler Market & Yeoman Roads. Birds were everywhere as we enjoyed our lunchtime visit on a picnic bench with our food brought in.
This month the blooming honeysuckle bushes where evident everywhere with many different types of pine & deciduous trees abundant. Landscaping is obviously been one of the parks best attractions. Open 5 am-10pm.
