Bend Parks and Recreation is excited to be adding of two new parks to the District. The downturn in the real estate market means they can buy land at a much cheaper rate for future parks. They are close to buying nearly five acres of land near the Old Mill District called "Millers Landing." “And lots of people think this is the highest and best use of that land, a community park to be used by kayakers, canoers, anglers, families, pictures. I can go on and on.” Greg Cushman is with the Trust for Public Lands. They are close to raising the $1.8 million for the Miller Landing Project. The second park is known as Gopher Gulch and its up river from Tumalo State Park. It's expected to take five years before these two new parks will become a reality.
