Thank you, community members, for voicing your strong support for the future of Eugene Parks and Rec. The bond and levy have passed! Now parks staff will begin working on everything from strengthening safety and security efforts and increasing park maintenance, to planning park renovations and the creation of new parks in underserved areas.
These are just the first steps in a much larger 30 year System Plan that was created based on feedback you’ve given us over the last three years.

Two public, open houses hosted. Hours of research conducted. Dozens of design ideas scrutinized. Thousands of online surveys completed. Three months of public engagement culminated in the final design concept of Eugene's Downtown Riverfront Park.
