This place is amazing for feeding ducks/sea gulls/geese. My husband and I would bike here near daily because it's a great place to walk/bike around, and also the best place I've ever been to to feed the birds. There has to be at least 200 birds all on one spot. They devour 2 loaves of bread in less than 15... More

Gotta love this park, it has a big duck pond, bike paths, bridges, lots of gorgeous scenery, occasional art shows, ez parking, and it is right off the Ferry Street Bridge and Centennial Blvd. A bit tricky to get to (use a map or regret it), but worth it.

While the entire park runs along the Willamette River, it is the dog park that really stands out. It gives true meaning to the term dog "park." Not a dusty lot under a freeway or a postage stamp patch of grass, but, a real park. While I didn't pace it out, it must be about 2 acres in size. There... More

Nice Park to bring the family to on a nice day and watch the ducks and geese (but don't feed them). Lots of room to do any number of activities. boat rentals sometimes available.

The park is a nice large quiet space for recreation and to get away from the city, even though Eugene is not that big. There is a fantastic display of American Nobel Peace Prize winners, as well as displays for some of the planets of the solar system, the rest of which are down the Willamette River. I biked through... More

This really is a beautiful park Ali g the river with many trails. There's ducks and geese to feed. The only drawback is some transients around at times. Otherwise a very fun park to come to with little ones for the ducks and just to walk around!

Love the trails for running and biking. Always a pretty good presence of people on the paths, so safety is never really a concern. That said, there are an abundance of transients from Springfield to Eugene, who camp frequently close to the trails, much to the dismay of residents. Wish there were more trash cans, especially on the Eugene side.

I am an avid runner and made Eugene a part of my trip to the northwest solely because of it's deep running history. I went for my morning run at Alton Baker Park on Pre's Trail and loved the woodchip surface! The trail is long enough that repeating a few times gets you a decent length run and a neat... More

Walking distance from B & B. Great trails. Great way to explore the area. Went for a walk/run. A little hiking involved as it climbs upward.

I was able to get in 3 miles walking beautiful waterfront trails with my dog. The trails were soft and perfect for jogging. A+ attraction
