Bend Oregon’s Pine Pine Nursery Park is a large community park and located in northeast Bend between Purcell, Deschutes Market, and Yeoman Roads and consists of 159 acres. The park includes a sports complex for field sports, natural areas, fishing pond, fitness trails, disc golf course, paved trails, a 14-acre off-leash area, all-abilities playground, pickleball courts and room for future expansion.

While visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Bend, Oregon last August, we took their dogs Elsinore and Artie to the Pine Nursery Park early one morning.  In addition to a large sports complex, playgrounds, natural areas, fishing pond, fitness trails, and disc golf course, the park includes a 14-acre off-leash dog park.

Half of the dog park features trails through a natural area well representing the volcanic high desert of central Oregon.  While the representative color of the big sagebrush, rabbitbrush, bunchgrass and junipers are lovely, I instead focused on the rich textures, organic patterns and inspiring monochrome tonality.
