BEND, OR -- Bend Parks and Recreation is extending free recreation opportunities at The Pavilion through June 18, in an effort to increase usage of the new covered facility off Southwest Simpson Avenue. Free play sessions are offered Monday through Saturday, and include basketball, pickleball, indoor soccer and croquet. 


"This spring is unique as The Pavilion is not as heavily scheduled with programs as it will be this summer and beyond," Director of Recreation Matt Mercer said in a statement. "It was the fist time the facility transitioned from an ice rink to sport courts and there were a number of variables that we needed to carefully plan around. The transition went smoothly and the facility is available for the community to enjoy before summer programs begin."


Schedules and additional information is available at the Parks and Rec website, or by calling 541-389-7588. The Pavilion is located at 1001 SW Bradbury Way.
