WHERE TO PARK IN DOWNTOWN
All visitors are welcome and encouraged to extend their parking time, longer than 2 hours, with the following options and locations. Additional time may be purchased in the Mirror Pond lots at $1 per hour for each additional hour or the parking garage at $5 for all day. NOTE: Additional time in the Mirror Pond lots has to be paid for at the time of parking.
DON'T STICK OUT
There are more than 5,200 parking spaces in downtown Bend, on the street and in parking lots. Of those, 390 angled spaces on Wall Street and Bond Street and a section of Oregon Avenue are not quite long enough to accommodate all vehicles.
Hitch racks must not extend beyond the white parking stripe.
Be sure to pull your vehicle all the way forward.
