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

I spent 5 hours here walking along the river while my car was being serviced. There are great places to sit and people watch or read a book.

This park is so beautiful and conveniently located, it's too bad I can't visit it often. Frankly, the number of ducks and geese there has grown completely out of control. They need to thin the heard by 80% (at least). Duck and goose poop cover so many of the walking surfaces; it's disgusting. It just turns me off, so I... More

Lots to see and do here. Hiking, biking, kayaking, bridges, ducks, geese, frisbee golf, gardens, nature center, special events, water features, islands, sculptures, and other things I'm sure I missed as I was only there one day!

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
