Bender Family Recreational Park (Bender Fields) is a 56-acre ball field complex featuring 21 acres of open space, soccer fields, and lacrosse field, 35 acres of softball, and youth baseball fields. Contact the Park Office for field use permission and field availability.
This park comes alive mid-March and doesn't quiet down until late October.
The Jim Kaemingk Sr. City Trail meanders through the complex, beginning at Bender Road to Aaron Drive.
There is a 1-acre fenced enclosed "Off Leash" Dog Park in the southeast corner of the complex.
Also available at Bender Fields is Picnic Shelter, Large Indoor Kitchen Facility, Picnic Tables, Bocce Ball Court, Large Playground, Concessions, and Restroom Facilities.
Mt. Baker Rotary Club and the Community donated the funds and time in 2019 to build a Sports Park. This Sports Park was built as an addition to Bender Fields as a park for all ages but focused on building a park for preteen and young adults (and the young in heart adults),
Rotary Sports Park amenities include: 2 large Climbing Rocks, 4 full size Basketball Courts, 4 Pickleball Courts, 1 Beach/Sand Volleyball Court, 1-life sized Chessboard, and a Dirt Pump Bike Track.
Rotary Sports Courts are available to use at a first come first serve basis.
Bender Fields is the location of the Lynden Parks Department Office and Park Maintenance Shop.
