Cameron McCarthy worked for Bend Park & Recreation Department (BPRD) on the design and construction of Hillside Park. Hillside Park includes an existing neighborhood park owned by BPRD and a reservoir and off-leash dog area owned by the City of Bend. The preliminary concept plans for the park envisioned new traditional play, nature play, wild side play, family and community amenities, off-street parking, improved access, enhanced signage and wayfinding, and dog park improvements including perimeter fencing, small/large dog areas, and formalized paths/trails. After conducting two neighborhood meetings and administering an online preferences survey, our firm developed concept and design refinements with BPRD staff and was subsequently contracted to manage the project through construction. The park was completed in 2017.
