Less than three miles from Bend and under 30 minutes from Sunriver, Shevlin Park is a favorite for hiking, jogging, wildlife viewing, fishing, picnicking and mountain biking.  In the winter people enjoy cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

Tumalo Creek goes through the park with several footbridges crossing it.  A scene from the Disney movie Homeward Bound was filmed on one of the bridges going over Tumalo Creek.  You can see the scene below:

The bridge in the movie has since been removed because the bridge had come to the end of it’s lifespan.

An easy 4.7 mile loop trail will take you through forests, along a river, and over foot bridges through Shevlin Park.  This is the perfect trail to take the kids on or to take a book along and find a quiet spot to read.
