With a new, limited-duration parking pilot program, there will be four-hour parking limits along Riverside Boulevard, from NW Broadway Street to NW Tumalo Avenue, to encourage drivers to park for a limited time and allow more park users the opportunity to visit Drake Park between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.

Here's where the four-hour parking limit will be in place from May 26 - September 3, 2018:

WHAT OTHER WAYS CAN I GET TO DRAKE PARK?

Cascade East Transit’s seasonal shuttles  and Bend fixed route services provide easy and affordable transportation options. Cascades East Transit’s Ride the River shuttle transports river users from Bend Park & Float, located at Simpson Avenue and Bradbury Drive next to The Pavilion.

This location will serve as the new start and end of the river floating activities with abundant parking available beginning June 16. The $3 fare includes transportation of river tubes to and from the float launch and exit.

For other park activities, including festivals, picnics or walks along Mirror Pond, the free Ride Bend shuttle stops within a five-minute walk of Drake Park, making it easy to leave the vehicle parked at home, work or other parking areas.

HOW CAN I PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON THE PARKING PILOT PROGRAM?

Neighbors who would like to tell us how the program is going can call 541-317-3000 and press 3 for the Streets & Operations Department. Calls to this number will be logged and the feedback recorded. Calls to this number will not forwarded to enforcement.
