Basket Case

Disc golf is easy fun for all Central Oregon families
If you head over to Pine Nursery or Rockridge Park this summer, you might spot a group of friends or families cheering every time they manage to toss a small plastic disc into a big metal basket mounted on a pole. "BLACK ACE!" one might shout, if the player landed a totally crazy shot in an unintended basket.

Happy Centennial!

Let's Get Out There!

Winter Activity Roundup 2021

As we jump into the full swing of winter amidst pandemic restrictions, you may be wondering what activities are still on offer for kids in Bend and beyond.

Feel the Freedom

Bicycle commuting for students of all ages
