The Source graciously delivered the Glass Slipper to the Miller's Landing project and all who have been working hard to turn this vacant riverfront property into a community park. For that, I thank you. However, we're not done yet. To date, we have secured over $1.66 million, but our purchase price is $1.8 million. Before TPL can convey the property to the Park District we need to close the funding gap. We have received incredible support from private individuals, businesses, public grants and foundations and for that we are grateful.
If you appreciate Bend's riverfront park system and if you would like to see Miller's Landing become a new community park, please consider making a donation and help TPL close the funding gap. One hundred percent of all contributions to the Miller's Landing project go toward purchasing the property. Please visit www.tpl.org/ML to make a contribution and learn more.

Sincere thanks!

- Kristin Kovalik, Miller's Landing Project Manager

For all of you who would rather have a skilled chef prepare your fixins, here's a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner, courtesy of Visit Bend.
