“Serene local gathering place”

Drake Park is a park in Bend, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It was named for Alexander M. Drake, the original owner of the site. The park is a popular downtown community gathering place and hosts many events, including the Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration. Features include nearly one half mile of riverfront on Mirror Pond, acres of open lawn, an outdoor stage, restrooms and small picnic tables. A major renovation project for the park was completed in 2003. The restrooms were upgraded, pathways throughout the park were replaced with pavers making the walkway wider, new irrigation and lighting systems were installed, bike racks were installed, a seating and viewing area was added at Mirror Pond and the High Wheel returned to the park after years in storage. Drake Park is in the Old Bend Neighborhood. Drake Park Neighborhood Historic District is adjacent to the park.

This may be Bend's most popular outdoor public gathering place, so it receives more human use than any other city park. With majestic ponderosa pine and deciduous hardwoods throughout, it fronts the Deschutes River at Mirror Pond and is adjacent to downtown shops. Scheduled summer events are many and diverse, so weekdays and early morning are usually best for finding `wild` wildlife.
