There are many neighborhoods located off Mt. Washington Dr. and Century Dr., also known as the Cascade Lakes Highway. Cascade views and larger, heavily treed lots make this a coveted area. If you are into kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, mountain biking or golf, you might want to consider this area. Broken Top, Tetherow, and Widgi Creek golf courses all lie within the neighborhood and if you’re looking for a neighborhood close to Mt Bachelor and the Cascade Lakes, you can’t get much closer than Century West.
Schools that fall within the Century West boundary include High Lakes Elementary and William E. Miller Elementary, Cascade Middle School, and Summit High School. The Bend Parks and Rec District is presently working on improvements to Alpine Park, a currently undeveloped site that provides unmarked trailhead access heading west to the Deschutes National Forest. Plans for the park can be found here: Alpine Trailhead
