This popular downtown community gathering place hosts many events throughout the spring, summer and fall, including the district’s Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration.

Features include nearly a half mile of riverfront, acres of open lawn, an outdoor stage, restrooms and small picnic tables. A major renovation project for this park was completed in 2003. The restrooms have been upgraded, pathways throughout the park have been replaced with pavers making the walkway wider, new irrigation and lighting systems have been installed, bike racks have been installed, a seating and viewing area was added at Mirror Pond and the High Wheel has made a triumphant return to the park. Drake Park is more beautiful than ever!

Top Reasons to Visit Bend this Fall

Fall is Bend Oregon’s most magical season for many reasons. Nights are much cooler, but days are still filled with sunshine. The trees have gone from bright green to shades of red, orange, and yellow leaves. Crowds have thinned out, but the weather is still nice enough to enjoy your favorite beer on the outdoor patio of your favorite Bend Ale Trail brewery. Hotel stays and activities are getting cheaper, but the experience is just as amazing as ever. You can still count on an event or two happening every weekend. Bend’s restaurants are transitioning to delicious fall-themed seasonal ingredients, including those tasty seasonal brews you’ve been waiting all year to try. With the abundance of outdoor recreation and perfect weather, fall is surely the time of year to be in Bend.
