I really liked the access at numerous places, the well managed foot trails, the rose gardens. Truly beautiful. I ended up on the park and trail twice exploring Eugene on foot. Very worthwhile. Suggest an afternoon spent exploring the river and parks.

An excellent place to float, bike, hike, walk, stroll, whatever floats your boat. Fun way to get some exercise when the weather cooperates.

We parked on the back side of Valley River Center, thinking that even though the winter day was cold, damp and foggy, we might enjoy a walk along the river. Well, yes and no.

I rode my bike on this trail every day I was there. Just a few blocks from the Econo Lodge where I stayed.

This is an industrial river here. Go to the nearby Mckenzie. It is cleaner and has better surroundings

Eugene has fabulous bike trails along the river with stops at the Owens Rose garden, restaurants, UO and more. You can rent bikes or bring your own. Pack a lunch and picinic at Skinner's Butte or Alton Baker. The river is peaceful and so beautiful at any time of the year.
