Drake Park and Mirror Pond
Featuring a half-mile of riverfront on Mirror Pond and 13 acres to explore, Drake Park is a popular community gathering place located in downtown Bend. The site of the Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration and the Great Drake Duck Race, this park has recently undergone a major renovation, and now offers wider walkways, new lighting systems and a seating area on the waterfront. A peaceful place to relax and enjoy the fresh green environment, Drake park is nestled in the center of the city. Nearby you’ll find historic Craftsman homes, white picket fences, and plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining. In the park you might encounter a morning Tai Chi class, afternoon yoga group or evening drum circle. Mirror Pond is a picturesque body of water, and the namesake of Deschutes Brewery’s best selling beer, Mirror Pond Pale Ale. Stroll beside the pond and enjoy surroundings of Ponderosa pines and grassy expanses.
