2006 Bond Measure Progress

Future Home of Santa Clara Community Park
In 2006, Eugene voters passed a $27.5 million bond measure for Parks and Recreation acquisition and limited development.

Most targeted projects complete


Over the last 10 years, most of the targeted projects have been completed including:
  • Acquisition of 1,220 acres of parkland for natural areas and developed parks throughout the community
  • Renovation or construction of 11 turf sports fields in partnership with 4j and Bethel School Districts
The map below illustrates the distribution and type of bond-funded projects across the city (view PDF).

Many targets exceeded with additional funds


In many categories, original targets have been exceeded. This, in part, was accomplished through an additional $14.9 million in grants, donations, partner funds and other capital sources that successfully leveraged bond funding.
