The Bend Park and Recreation Department is making plans to renovate Ponderosa Park soon. In fact, they held an informational meeting Thursday night to show the public what your ideas look like on paper. "Ponderosa Park is going to be renovated. It will have a new design and we have had lots of public input. So what we're having, coming up next is an opportunity to come and look at the preliminary design of the new park renovation." Jan Taylor, Community Relations Manager for Bend Parks and Recreation says Ponderosa Park is one of the older parks and is in dire need of updating. The park is on southeast 15th Street in Bend. The community meeting was last week and the improvements were well received.
