Bend’s depressed real estate market has lead to some interesting opportunities for the Bend Parks District. And in the past year or so the District has spent more than $6 million in large acquisitions. The most recent was last week when the Board bought an 11 acre parking lot for $2.5 million. In an article in the Bulletin, the newspaper reports that total $6.35 million the District's spent in the last 13 months equates to about one third of the District's annual revenue. Park officials don't expect any reduction in services due to these large land purchases. - but they admit there could be some shifting of long-term priorities in order to fully develop some of these recent opportunities.
