A great deal of the planning work has been completed, including the first round of public surveys and feedback, habitat inventory and assessment, and extensive site mapping, analysis and evaluation.

Additionally, removal of invasive and dense vegetation, such as blackberry brambles and scotch broom, has significantly reduced the wildfire threat to the park. This fuels reduction work, funded by a large grant from the Bureau of Land Management, has had the added benefit of allowing access into portions of the site that were previously unreachable.


Site Access

Site access is currently limited and can be a challenging hike for those not prepared. Site Map


Parks staff will be giving guided site tours in February and May 2020. Sign-up information will be available through the Winter/Spring Rec Guide.

Please be forewarned that there is a tremendous amount of poison-oak throughout the site, as well as blackberry thickets and wood ticks. Since the property boundaries are not completely marked, it is easy to trespass unintentionally. If you attempt to access the site, please stay on the legal access routes and be respectful of neighbors and surrounding private property.

About Suzanne Arlie Park

Suzanne Arlie Park is the largest park in Eugene’s park system. It consists of 515 acres in southeast Eugene, just south of Lane Community College. Purchased in two separate transactions, 200 acres in 2008 and another 315 acres in 2011, the park has made possible a key ridgeline trail connection between Mt. Baldy and I-5. Although a master plan was completed as a requirement of the purchase agreement for the initial 200 acres, the plan became outdated once the park more than doubled in size with the second acquisition.
