Things to do in Redmond
We must really praise the City of Redmond for being open to sports. In 2001 Redmond developed a skate park. Redmond partnered with BLM to create the Radlands Mt Bike area on the west end of town. There is also a BMX track here.
This city has worked hard to protect the Dry Canyon from development and open the area up to recreation use. This provides a linear 5-mile long paved trail. There is also multiple dirt surfaced trails which are great for trail running and mt biking. Horses are also allowed on the dirt trails.
The dry canyon also offers a disk golf course and a dog off-leash area near the skate park. There are climbing boulders at American Legion Park (just south of Hwy 126) and a new kids climbing area is being developed at Sam Johnson Park (about 1/2 mile south of the skate park).
