Alton Baker Park is a runner, walker, or biker's delight, and a great place for a solitary or family picnic. Situated by the Willamette River, there is open grassy area and also a number of paths to chose from, all of them scenic. You can watch the ducks, spot blue herons and other wildlife, pick blackberries, enjoy the wildflowers and... More

Took a large group of children and youth to explore the butterfly garden. Not a single map on-line or on-site that identifies location of designated areas except disc golf and Kalapuya Stones. Love the park but frustrated with poor signage.

My boyfriend and I strolled through the park with coffee in hand to see the blooming spring flowers and waterfowl. Lots of duck, geese and newborns greeted us as we walked by. Definitely a great stop if you're visiting.

This park is a great place for family walks, bike rides and picnics. It is also a great venue for our yearly Art in the Vineyard event as well as many other events that are hosted there. Access is easy with parking just adjacent to the park and restrooms conveniently located. There used to pavillions for rent but I am... More

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!
