At its western edge, downtown Bend slopes down to Drake Park and Mirror Pond. Thirteen acres of manicured greensward and trees line the edge of the Deschutes, attracting flocks of Canada geese as well as strollers from downtown. Various events, such as music festivals, occur in the park during the summer months. Note the 11-foot high wheel log skidder in Drake Park, harkening back to Bend's logging industry in the early 20th century, when four draft horses pulled the wheel
to move heavy logs.
