Welcome to Boyd Acres Neighborhood!

In Bend Oregon

Welcome to our neighborhood. Boyd Acres is one of 13 areas defined by the City of Bend. Each neighborhood has an association funded by the City. Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA) is NOT a Homeowners Association. BANA's boundaries are Purcell Rd. on the east and the Deschutes River to the west. The southern boundary is defined by Mt Washington Dr., the North Unit Irrigation Canal and Butler Market Rd. 

Bend is an incorporated city in Deschutes County, one of three counties that are often referred to as Central Oregon. Whether you are a prospective resident, visitor, a new or longtime resident, these pages and links will direct you to more information that will help you enjoy and deal with all the neighborhood has to offer.

Our neighborhood is named for Charles William Boyd, the iconic pioneer, who came to Central Oregon in 1904, drawn by the potential to grow his cattle business. He purchased six acres by the Deschutes River with prospects for a water wheel and dam. A year later his family joined him and eventually his holdings grew to 600 acres supplying beef across the region. The area became know for its ranching and timber industries. 

 BANA welcomes newcomers and long time residents to participate in our activities and meetings.  See Get Involved.
