In many cities, parks services and recreation services are provided by the same part of the organization. In Eugene, those duties are managed by two different divisions: the Parks and Open Space Division of the Public Works Department, and the Recreation Services Division of the Library, Recreation, and Cultural Services (LRCS) Department.
The Parks and Open Space Division manages Eugene’s parks, playgrounds, trails, open spaces, wetlands, and outdoor shelters. The Recreation Services Division manages pools, community centers, and meeting rooms, and offers diverse recreation experiences in six program areas: Youth and Family, Outdoor, Adult & Senior, Adaptive, Aquatics, and Athletics. Park and Recreation facilities are available for rent. Visit our full listing of Park and Recreation facilities.
