A mixture of residences, parks, trails and businesses, Boyd Acres Neighborhood offers a little of everything including schools, venues and features of historical interest.
High desert terrain, it lies in the rain shadow of the Central Oregon Cascade Mountains at an elevation near 3,500 feet. Mountain views attract residents to the neighborhood as well as convenience to shopping and services. Public lands managed by the Deschutes National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management border the city limits providing many trails and mountain lakes.
Originally known for ranching and lumber mills, Bend has more recently drawn newcomers and visitors for golfing, skiing and other recreational activities. Commercial airline access is available from Redmond Airport and private air from the Bend Airport. Public transportation managed by Cascade East Transit (CET) has a limited service in the neighborhood at this time.
