    Survey Says.......

    Good article yesterday in The Bulletin about a recent Bend Parks and Recreation survey of 412 households in Bend area.

    Despite having more trails than you can shake a stick at, Bend residents want more trails. Soft surface trails were the number one request from residents.

    As a professional trail consultant, I track these types of surveys and the Bend Survey is similar to many other communities and cities in the US. Charlotte/Mecklumberg (NC) Parks and Rec dept survey found the same thing several years ago, and the US Home Builders Assoc. published a study some 5 years ago and found that trails were the number one amenity asked for by new home buyers (trails were asked for five times more than golf course as a close-by amenity).

    The Break down here in Bend:
    1. Soft Surface Trails
    2. Multi Purpose Pools
    3. Recreation/activity pools
    4.Hard Surface- Multi-Use Trails
    5. Off Leash Dog Areas
