Community Parks in Bend, Oregon

LCPark_ Jameson_sq.jpgUpon completion, four community parks totaling over 32 acres will provide the residents of NorthWest Crossing plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor recreation, just minutes from their doorstep. Though built by the developer of NorthWest Crossing, all community parks will be gifted to Bend Park & Recreation District, which currently operates two of the parks.

Compass_girl_swing.jpgIn the heart of NorthWest Crossing is Compass Park. This unique 5-acre circular-shaped park features a fun and unique play area, covered pavilion, bike paths and naturally preserved landscape. Compass Park is home to the annual outdoor cinema series, Munch & Movies, which takes place each summer.LCPark_boys_on_plane.jpgLewis & Clark Park is conveniently located near High Lakes Elementary and features a playground for kids of all ages,  rock wall, basketball court and lots of turf to run and play in.

Sunset View Park is heavily treed with mature ponderosa pine and juniper and has no formal landscaping. The natural setting features trail and exercise stations. The Rim Rock Natural Area and the West Bend Trail lie immediately to the west. Off the beaten path but a great location for a quiet walk or workout.

In future development, Discovery Park is slated to have a large amount of green open space, natural gathering areas, including a water feature, activities for families and provide the community with another great event venue.
