Alpenglow Community Park Boasts New Bridge

Construction crews have placed a new bridge over the railroad tracks at Alpenglow Community Park, pushing the long-awaited Bend Park and Recreation District project closer to completion. The 71,000-pound structure was moved into place this weekby a large crane.The bridge will facilitate pedestrian access to 600 households within a 5-minute walk on the west side of the railway and park. Final work includes pouring the concrete bridge and installing steel bridge guardrails, and constructing the bridge’s ramp that connects the bridge to the park’s pathway. The work is expected to last a month and will be completed by the park’s June opening date. The $9.52 million community park on 15th Street includes a splash pad, dog park, multiple climbing structures, open lawn space, an event space, and demonstration garden.
