West Alton Baker Park
Located immediately east of the Ferry Street Bridge along the north bank of the Willamette River, West Alton Baker Park has had a long history of development, first under the jurisdiction of Lane County Parks Department, and more recently under the jurisdiction of the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space Division. The original 20-acre parcel was purchased by Lane County in 1881, however most of the park land was acquired by Lane County Parks between 1959 and 1964.
The current size of the park is approximately 400 acres. The park is named after Alton F. Baker, co-founder of the Eugene Register Guard, who was involved in park acquisition issues, and was instrumental in acquiring both this park and Maurie Jacobs Park.
