Rec Bond Projects
Our community has voiced its support for the future of Eugene Parks and Rec with the $39.35 million bond and $3.15 million levy passed in May 2018. Now we are taking the first steps to bring the 30-year System Plan vision to life.
Rec is hard at work on our bond goals of caring for and making the most of what we have and serving the entire community. We have begun the design phases of the two top bond priorities: renovations and expansions to Campbell Community Center and Echo Hollow Pool & Fitness Center. Below is an update on both projects.
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.
Over the coming months and years, we will be asking for your thoughts once again on specific projects as we start to dig in. Stay tuned, and thanks again for your vote of support!

Campbell Community Center is the second oldest senior center on the west coast and has been serving Eugeneans since 1968 with the last major expansion completed in 1990.
The aging facilities in for a major renovation with plans to nearly double the square footage and add much more room for fitness activities.
In September 2019, early site development and excavation began and construction on the 5,745 square-foot expansion is scheduled to begin in January 2020. We're hopeful the unveiling of the new-look will happen in the fall of 2020.
