This park will be a great amenity for our residents at North Rim and give them a fabulous outdoor space in which to gather and play. We are really pleased with the way the park showcases the native high desert landscaping, which is a key part of the concept of the North Rim community as a whole.
Bend, Oregon (PRWEB) December 21, 2007
North Rim, a community that features one-acre and larger premier homesites on Bend Oregon's Awbrey Butte, today announced the North Rim Park project has been completed. The private park will serve residents of North Rim with a tennis court, picnic seating area, open spaces and trails. The park was designed by Drake Design Group and constructed by Botanical Developments.
Romy Mortensen, vice president of sales and marketing for Brooks Resources Corporation, a Central Oregon real estate developer, which is developing North Rim, said, "This park will be a great amenity for our residents at North Rim and give them a fabulous outdoor space in which to gather and play. We are really pleased with the way the park showcases the native high desert landscaping, which is a key part of the concept of the North Rim community as a whole."
The park features native plantings and rock outcroppings, along with erosion control elements to help stabilize the area on which the project sits. An open round pavilion area sits on the edge of the park, overlooking the Cascade Mountain range and the Deschutes River.
The North Rim Park tennis court was designed and constructed by Cushion Courts of Oregon, which has patented its court building process using a recycled tire surface on asphalt. The recycled tire surface protects the court from the sun's UV rays, keeping it from cracking, as well as providing a low impact surface for players.
