Recreation facilities at Amazon Park include two community centers and Eugene’s only outdoor pool. Amazon Community Center offers a variety of enrichment activities, classes, workshops, special events, and summer camps for people of all ages. Hilyard Community Center is where the city’s Adaptive Recreation Program is housed, which offers opportunities for people with physical, developmental and emotional disabilities to develop active health and playful lifestyles. Amazon Pool is an outdoor pool facility located at 2600 Hilyard Street, and typically is open late May through September.

For more information on programs offered at the community centers or Amazon Pool, visit the City of Eugene Recreation web page.

The Adidas/Rexius Trail System, a 5.5-mile bark jogging path, wends through Amazon Park, along Amazon Parkway and up to Frank Kinney Park, where a connection to the Ridgeline Park can be found at the end of Canyon Drive.

Other notable facilities in Amazon Park include ball and soccer fields, tennis courts, a community garden, an outdoor performance space, play area, a small skateboard bowl, a 3 acre dog park for dogs of all sizes, and a separate .5 acre dog park for dogs that weigh 25 pounds or less.

Grass at Amazon parkSome of the natural features of Amazon Park which add to its beauty, value and educational opportunities include: Amazon Creek, ash woodlands, wet prairie areas including restored wetlands, and a preserve for the federally listed endangered species, Bradshaw’s Lomatium, Lomatium bradshawii. Two of these special park features have been given Native American, Kalapuyan names. Students involved with the South Eugene Environmental Club initiated the naming effort through their volunteer activities helping to maintain wetland areas in the park. The students consulted with area Native American elders to determine appropriate names. The restored wetland located to the west of the playground is named Gawa-Ni, which translates into “place where you walk through wetlands”. The ash grove on the west side of the creek is named Ma-Lik, which translates into “ash tree grove”.
