This park is centrally located to public transportation. Plenty of parking and I have always felt safe visiting this public city park. The running/walking/biking trail next to the river is one of the most scenic I have experienced in any city park. The fact that the trail is beside a beautiful river makes it one of my favorite. Public bathrooms... More

Love walking down to the river and around the duck pond with my granddaughter. Pre's Trail begins and ends here in the park. A short walk from many restaurants and shopping in Eugene. Great place for a group gathering or family outing. Frisbie golf course on the grounds.

Just a stone throw's away from our hotel. Walking alongside the Williamette River. The path fairly easy and flat. Great for kids...playground area with lots to do and see. Check out the archeological pit and do your own digging!

When I walked along the River Walk, I ended up in Alton Baker Park a few times. It was a nice park, and I found a special spot where I could hear the rush of the river and really relax.

I walk through the park when I go to Oregon football games. That's fat lest 6 times a year. I go see concerts at the amphitheater every summer. I've biked, fished, swam (your not allowed to do this) walked, hung out, thrown a frisbee... Ok you see where I'm going. This park is a short walk from downtown. It's large,... More

We were in town for the MSU Spartans v the Oregon Ducks football game and were looking for a place to run. The hotel recommended the Alton Baker Park. It is close to the football stadium and was a few miles from the hotel. We drove over and parked our car. The trail is well marked and goes along the... More
