Suzanne Arlie Park Master Plan

Site Access
Several guided site tours were given in May and June. Site access is currently limited and can be a challenging hike for those not prepared.

Please be forewarned that there is a tremendous amount of poison-oak throughout the site, as well as blackberry thickets and wood ticks.
  Since the property boundaries are not completely marked,
it is easy to trespass unintentionally.

If you attempt to access the site, please stay on the legal access routes and be respectful of neighbors and surrounding private property.

First Public Meeting

The first public meeting to develop a new Master Plan for Suzanne Arlie Park was held on May 10. 
Site history, background information and maps were presented, along with notice of the initial web survey. Participants also had the opportunity to sign up for guided site tours.

Suzanne Arlie Park
Suzanne Arlie Park is the largest park in Eugene’s park system. It consists of 516 acres in southeast Eugene, just south of Lane Community College. Purchased in two separate transactions, 200 acres in 2008 and another 315 acres in 2011, the park has made possible a key ridgeline trail connection between Mt. Baldy and I-5. Although a master plan was completed as a requirement of the purchase agreement for the initial 200 acres, the plan became outdated once the park more than doubled in size with the second acquisition. POS has begun background work towards an updated master plan, and the first public meeting will be held soon. Check back here for updates.
