Ciernan's First Hike!

Shevlin Park

Elevation: 3,600 Feet

We took an evening in the sweltering heat to grab some fish tacos at Long Board Louie's and take them to Shevlin Park.  This is perhaps one of the prettiest parks in Bend, Oregon.  The nice thing about Shevlin is that while all the other Deschutes River Parks are packed with people trying to cool off and enjoy the perpetually frigid river that drives through Central Oregon, Shevlin is generally not very busy.  If you haven't ever done the loop around Shevlin Park, you are missing out on one of the best parks in the state.
