With the wife out shopping for staples for our oldest son's apartment in his last year at the U of O, my other two son's and I decided to explore Eugene a bit. The three of were dropped off at Skinner Butte Park for some hiking. Small short trails, some a bit steep but still manageable weave around the Butte.... More

This might be the best kid playground we have been to. The detail that the planners went to to incorporate local culture is amazing. This park, as silly as it is, was one of the highlights of the trip.

The flora and fauna on this hike are exceptional. The trees reach all the way to heaven. Deer roam gracefully beside hikers as if to welcome us to their peaceful habitat. It felt like we were part of a timeless forest.

Hiking trail is about a mile each way. Access from several trailheads along a park along the river trail. Very well signed along the way. Great view over downtown Eugene. You can drive up too, but why skip the chance to stretch your legs and earn the summit?

This is a great place to visit, right along the Willamette River, not too far from downtown Eugene. It offers lots of paths, great for bike riding or walking, and you can't beat the view. There are also bridges that cross the river or go down close to the University of Oregon. Many miles of fun!

I live just a few blocks from this park, and I frequent it often. It is awesome. It is part of a big park system that rings most of the Willamette River front in Eugene. There's a bike path along the river, there's an awsome playground including sand and water play for the kids, there's an awesome mini-butte for walking/hiking/viewing... More

I've taken the kiddos to this park a few times, and they adore it, especially my 2-year-old. The water play areas are nice, and easily accessible to even young ones. The 3-story play tower is great, with all the different slides and activities. We want to go back at least once a week before the rainy season hits!
