BPRD is currently finalizing its plans to decide which programs to run, how to assign and train staff and what other changes they'll need to offer programs safely.

Registration for summer programs is currently on pause so BPRD can design programs to comply with state regulations. Registration goes live May 26 at 5:30am. For those who have already registered before activities were shut down, BPRD will send details in two weeks, with information about any credits registrants may receive for canceled programs. Registration is still open for fall youth sports and Kids INC enrollment for the upcoming school year.
Youth lacrosse and girls' softball will both be canceled, and adult softball leagues remain postponed.
If Deschutes County's submission for Phase One reopening is approved, BPRD officials says they expect to reopen Juniper Swim & Fitness (except the pool) in early June. Bend Senior Center will remained closed.
"We will be using a reservation system to limit the number of people in each area of the facility to ensure social distancing and a safe environment," said Matt Mercer, recreation services director, in a press release. "The Larkspur Community Center is nearing the final stages of construction and should be ready to open by fall, which has been a longtime dream."
