A mixture of residences, parks, trails and businesses, Boyd Acres Neighborhood offers a little of everything: eight public schools including two new experimental high schools; sports venues for climbing, team sports and pickleball; Pine Nursery and Rock Ridge community parks and two neighborhood parks.
Our neighborhood lies in the rain shadow of the Central Oregon Cascade Mountains at an elevation near 3,300 feet. BANA is bordered by the Deschutes River, Bend's most iconic feature. Mountain views attract residents to the neighborhood as well as convenience to shopping and services. New retail shops are being added to a large retail sector adjoining Rt 97 or Third Avenue.
Originally known for ranching and lumber mills, Bend has more recently drawn newcomers and visitors for golfing, skiing and other recreational activities. Commercial airline access is available from Redmond Airport and private air from the Bend Airport. Public transportation managed by Cascade East Transit (CET) has a limited service in the neighborhood at this time. Major thoroughfares defining Boyd Acres include Empire Blvd, Rt 97, the Bend Parkway and Butler Market Road.
