A temporary parking restriction area adjacent to McKay Park will be in effect starting July 1, 2019. In order to provide access for residents and patrons of area businesses as well as park users at McKay Park and Bend Whitewater Park, the City of Bend is partnering with Bend Parks and Recreation District and has created a McKay Park temporary parking restriction program.

In order to provide easier access to Drake Park, the City of Bend partnered with Bend Parks and Recreation District to trial a Riverside Parking pilot program in the summer of 2018. The pilot was a success and Riverside was added to the downtown parking district in 2019. The parking limit is four-hours along Riverside Boulevard.
In order to improve functionality and safety, the City redesigned the South Mirror Pond Parking Lot (SMPPL). Construction was completed on June 4, 2019.
