Farewell Bend Park is located in the SW area of Bend. New homes have been built along some sections of the river and before they reach Farewell Bend itself. The Deschutes River winds its way downstream and has three bridges in the vicinity, in addition to a path out into the river area (images below).
There is plenty of parking within the Old Mill District itself (approval required), and the park covers a large area that includes restrooms, covered seating areas, horse sculptures, bridges, playground and grass.
Permits required from Bend Park and Rec.
