The Project


The Rotary Centennial Playground will be located at Larkspur Park adjacent to the Bend Senior Center.  The playground is being planned and developed in conjunction with the Bend Park and Recreation District.  Following is a description of their plans for the development of Larkspur Park.

Larkspur Park,
Duration: 5/01/2003 to 6/30/2005

Park Type: Neighborhood Parks
Address: Park site is off Reed Market Road in south east Bend...also the site of the Bend Senior Center.

Planning is currently underway for Bend's next neighborhood park project serving the neighborhood along Reed Market Road from 15th Street to 27th Street. As a companion to Bend's new Senior Center, the park will offer traditional neighborhood park amenities plus some community features to create a multi-generational atmosphere. Parking will be provided to accommodate expansion of the Senior Center in the future, as well as provide access to the Larkspur trailhead and a proposed regional playground. The Combined Rotary Clubs of Bend will be funding the construction of an "all children's playground" to be located in Larkspur Park. The service project is a Centennial Project for the Bend Rotary Clubs.

When completed, Larkspur Park will have amenities such as benches, paver walkways, trash receptacles, bike racks, a restroom, dog stations, tables, signs, a meadow, floral displays, a shade shelter, bocce and horseshoe courts, and other active areas. Approximately 40% of the site will be retained as a natural area and buffer to the surrounding neighborhoods, preserving juniper trees, alpine current and rabbit brush, as well as habitat for quail and small mammals commonly found in Central Oregon.
