Les Schwab Amphitheater

Named in honor of Central Oregon businessman Les Schwab, this outdoor riverfront amphitheater seats approximately 8,000 guests and is a popular event venue in the historic Old Mill District.

Drake Park

Bordering nearly half a mile of the Deschutes riverfront, Drake Park has strong community ties and hosts many events on its outdoor stage throughout the year. It’s also the designated nesting spot of the Great Horned Owl, whose owlets can be spotted in the late spring.

Mirror Pond

Bordering Drake Park, this glassy pond is created by the Pacific Power and Light hydroelectric dam, located just downstream of Newport Avenue Bridge. It’s been a staple feature of the City of Bend since the early 1900’s – Deschutes Brewery even named one of their craft beers after it!

McKay Park

This very popular park was named after Clyde McKay, who played a prominent part in Bend’s development from wilderness to an established city. The Oregon Trail Railroad interpretice sign within the park provides the fascinating history of Bend’s early railroad system.
