What I like about Alton Baker Park is that there is a varitey of "things" and places of beauty. Some of the "things" are the coveres areas, the foot bridges, the walking paths, the solar system models, bathrooms, benches, plenty of parking, wheel chair accessibility,...More

4th of July fireworks display was great as well as just enjoying the Willamette River and park paths and bike trails.

This isn't a place to visit if you want particular sights. It is a wonderful place to go for peaceful walks or runs. I go there with my dog several times a week. Every few weeks we visit the dog park, which is the best...More

I like the Willamette a lot and its breadth and length make it great for rafting, tubing, nature viewing, etc... Fishing isn't that great here and I prefer the McKenzie for trout, especially up around Nimrod.

My sister, son and I went walking through the park. There's a nice path to walk on, it follows along the river with walking bridges that crossover the river so you can walk along both sides.

An easy park in central Eugene, very close to Autzen Stadium. Located RIGHT on the Willamette river (yes, you can fish) with biking and running trails, lots of green grass to play (no play equipment- just open spaces) lots of parking. Nice ponds and water...More

Located near the historic "Ferry Street Bridge" and the Willamette River, this park is an attraction to those who enjoy wild waterfowl. It has a limited number of shelters but lots of open space for games and Frisbee. If you're in town to see Autzen...More
