Mirror Pond Meeting Set for Tomorrow

Bend Park & Recreation District will host a kick-off meeting tomorrow at the District Office Community Room in Bend, Oregon, to outline some of the possibilities for the trail and the aging rock wall that forms the eastern bank of Mirror Pond.

For several years, the district and the City of Bend worked together to find a common community vision to address sediment accumulation, water quality and environmental issues in Mirror Pond.

This process led the District Board of Directors and the Bend City Council to adopt a Mirror Pond community vision March 2015.

Currently, the district is working towards implementing portions of the vision affecting Drake Park, Pacific Park and the Deschutes River Trail only.

The pond was last dredged in 1984, when an estimated 60,000 cubic yards of material was removed.

The shallower pond that results from sediment accumulation contributes to warmer water in summer, stimulating the growth of aquatic plants but creating less than hospitable conditions for animal life in the pond.
