“Go to the Mckenzie”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

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

“Bike Trails and Beauty”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

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.

One of the most beautiful and clean rivers you will ever see. Also a great place to spend the day if you like to fish.

“beautiful peaceful walks”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Take a long walk, or jog, along this river. You will see serious joggers and mothers with babies and strollers, young students and older people. Watch the lazy river wind its way through the city. Take a walk, it's safe there and lots to see as you walk through city views and tress, quintessential Oregon experience!
