Redmond's Dry Canyon and Dry Canyon Trail blend a combination of naturally preserved high desert geological features with modern recreational amenities, to create a park unlike any other in Central Oregon.

Redmond is proud of its parks, and the Dry Canyon Park is the crown jewel of the Redmond park system.  In the Dry Canyon, there is plenty to keep you busy, and be sure to check out the newly constructed Hope Playground.

The fact that the majority of the Dry Canyon is set aside as a nature preserve, capturing the beauty of the High Desert environment, is a source of local pride. The canyon is pure Central Oregon, and the steep canyon walls serve as a tribute to this area’s tormented volcanic past.

The Dry Canyon Park meanders 3.7 miles through the Center of Redmond, offering recreational amenities as well as traditional park services, including a pavilion, benches, picnic tables, water fountains, a dog park, tennis, pickle ball, softball, paved walking trails and more. 

For you disk golf enthusiasts, the Dry Canyon Park offers one of Central Oregon’s best-loved courses.  The course snakes through the high desert terrain with sparse juniper groves, sage and grasses, and bordered by steep canyon walls.
