how can you not like a river?

Hey, it is pretty - it winds - it is made of water. It flows. it has banks. What's not to like? Really, how would you possible give a river a bad review?

There is a 3-4 mile path along the river between Autzen Stadium and campus which is scenic and passes by a dog park and a duck park/pond. It was fun to watch the animals in the spring sunshine and just be out doors.

The parks along the river in Eugene are wonderful. Good place to walk. Have a family picnic. Make a point of looking around it is beautiful.

Eugene has two major Rivers running through it, make sure you find yourself on one either rafting or in an inner tube, its a great way to relax and soak up some sun.

visiting the Willamette river. It runs through the heart of Eugene. Whether you raft it or walk alongside it on the River walk (behind Valley River Mall) you'll be refreshed by the sights and sounds of this beautiful river.

Love hearing the sounds, following the river through town, listening to the rushing water, watching white caps, seeing people enjoy it's splendor. This river lets you know that the world is in order for when water runs, all things are good!

The Willamette River runs right through Eugene, and the River Walk that runs alongside it is a great way to explore Eugene by foot or bicycle.

It's a beautiful river - and since the "formula" demands 50 characters I'll say it over and over - it's a beautiful river. . .

The mighty Willamette is a great place to relax and chill out. There are heaps of access points along the way, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to just relax.

a true draw to the area. Beautiful with decent access. A great place to go for a walk and relax. Be a bit careful. The city seems to encourage the aberrant addicts etc so be a bit careful
