Worrell Park

A new parking study saves a small park in downtown Bend for the time-being.

Deschutes County commissioners reviewed a parking analysis of the county’s downtown campus which, among other things, shows that Worrell Wayside Park will not be paved for new parking.

A community group that has advocated for saving the park is celebrating the victory.

“Absolutely. Absolutely thrilled. I’m excited. It was a community coming out to say we don’t like this. And the commission and the staff listened and we’re so appreciative of that,” said Donna Owens of Bend.

Worrell Park sits across from the Deschutes County Services Building.

The study is part of the county’s plan for a courthouse expansion.
