  • Drake park is the park of Bend! Located in the heart of downtown Bend it is very popular especially during the summer. Several events are held here such as Munch and music during the summer and farmers markets and craft fairs. The Deschutes River throat flows through the park and there are several groups of ducks that hang out there as well. When visiting Bend this is a park you cannot miss!
  • Drake Park is just a beautiful and peaceful park to visit. Lots of action going on in the summer months. It's a unloading and loading area for river rafters. Thre is also many events that take place here, as well as a great place to go for a walk, a swim, or feed the ducks.
  • Great park on river. Taken over homeless and drug attics. Could not use the parking lot. Had all their stuff scattered about.
  • Bends downtown park along the Deschutes River. Historically deemed as the towns first official park. Beautiful casual walk along the river during daytime but maybe should be avoided at night.
  • I posted pictures because to describe this park is almost impossible. Only reason is because it is filled with such beauty that the words lack the imagery lacks you have to take your self on a date their and sit, enjoy, take all of it in.
