Welcome to our neighborhood. Boyd Acres is one of 13 areas defined by the City of Bend. It lies in the northeast quadrant of the city between 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.
Charles William Boyd, the iconic pioneer, 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.
This website is maintained by Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA), a volunteer organization chartered by the city. We are always seeking the participation of anyone who lives or works in the neighborhood. See Get Involved.

A new Fred Meyer store in NE Bend probably won't be a reality until 2020, according to Peter Powell, Powell Development Co., the firm preparing a master plan for the grocery chain and other land owners. Much preparation of the land at Cooley Road and Rt 20 is necessary before Kroger, FM's parent company, will begin construction. That preparation includes construction of a roundabout at Cooley and Rt 20.
Powell said his plan had included a signal at the intersection, but the Oregon Dept. of Transportation requires a roundabout instead. The roundabout, which costs 5 times that of a signal, Powell told BANA members gathered at Monday's meeting, will be funded in part by the City of Bend, the State and his firm. This change in plans results in a 9 month delay.
