We attend the Holly ween Party in 2020. It was so much fun. Because of the virus it was a drive through party. It was so fun and so well done with different stops for entertainment and fright. A real family event for all ages. FUN FUN FUN

Dorris Ranch is a huge public park owned by Willamalane in Springfield and it is my favorite place to walk in all of Lane County.

We take our little dog (please keep your dogs on leashes here-as there are many other dog encounters) and have taken both the Willamette River walk/bike path that goes for 4.9 miles and the paths thru the Filbert Orchards to the river.

Lots of walking options, and very quiet, with gorgeous scenery.
Free parking too! (Beats Mt. Pisgah unless you want that hill work!)

This is a great first date hike, walk with friends or place to take your camera. I have always felt safe in this park. People are great about keeping dogs on a leash.

Be sure to take your camera!

We were there to do some practice photography with the new camera my daughter got. We enjoyed the trails and the historic farm vibe. The fall colors where nice. And most guests where curtious to others. We did notice that someone had gone through and broken the mushrooms that they could find which was disappointing since one of the things my daughter was practicing was macro photography and wanted fungus pictures.

Over all the park offers a great deal for walkers and people that like living history, just be aware that after school starts the rest rooms appear to be closed.

Easy trails, stroller accessible, through the orchards of old hazelnut trees wind down toward the river. Peaceful setting perfect for walking, bicycling, and walking your dog.

This is definitely one of the bigger parks in Eugene, it is very peaceful and a fun excursion for the kids. If you keep walking you'll end up on the biking path, which is a nice long walk/jog/run/biking excursion along the river. It doesn't look back to the ranch, I don't believe so anyway, so you have to turn around at some point.

I love this place. From the parking lot, you can walk on several paths through hazelnut orchards and decaying farm implements to the Willamette River. From there, you can continue for miles up the river or make a loop back to the parking lot. Good year round and dog-friendly.

Dorris Ranch is close to both Eugene and Springfield. The trails are all stroller-friendly, the park is dog-friendly, and there's a lot to explore. Walk through the orchards and see a working farm, especially fun during harvest season. Hike straight through and get to the river, where there are tables for picnicking. Skirt the edge and you'll find an interpretive pioneer village. It's also a trailhead for the new Middle Fork Trail that follows the Middle Fork of the Willamette River all the way to Clearwater Park in Thurston. We really love going to Dorris Ranch and we go often, but always discover something new.

Dorris Ranch is a rare, salvaged bit of the United States as it was after European settlers came to Oregon. The buildings are well preserved and the walks into the orchards left me feeling that I was back in the 1800's. It was a nice, peaceful bit of "time travel" kind of secretly tucked away in Springfield! Well worth the visit.
