Amends the Bend Pine Nursery Land Conveyance Act to repeal the authorization for the sale or exchange of any or all right, title, and interest of the United States in and to Tract A (comprising approximately 210 acres) of the Bend Pine Nursery in Oregon.

Rescinds the right of first refusal previously granted to the Bend Metro Park and Recreation District in Deschutes County, Oregon to purchase Tract A of the Bend Pine Nursery.

Requires that the real property conveyed to the Bend Metro Park and Recreation District under this Act be used for recreation purposes only and permits it to be developed for those purposes. Provides that, if the Secretary determines that the real property subject to this condition is converted, in whole or in part, to non-recreational use, the Secretary shall require the Bend Metro Park and Recreation District to pay to the United States an amount equal to the fair market value of such property at the time of conversion, less such consideration paid.
