Drake Park Boardwalk

A partial milestone has been achieved for the Drake Park boardwalk along the Deschutes River in Bend. It鈥檚 finally open to the public.

The project has been ongoing since 2015 to improve the trails and access to the river.聽It also connects the Deschutes River Trail to Drake Park and Pacific Park without using roads.

鈥淪o it鈥檚 a connection on the Deschutes that鈥檚 been missing for years and years and years. And now we鈥檝e finally created that completion,鈥 said construction manager Brian Hudspeth.

The entire project isn鈥檛 finished just yet. Some sets of stairs and other sections of the path still need to be added.

Bend Park and Recreation District expects the full project to finish by October.
