Who maintains the riverfront? How can I submit a maintenance request or report illegal activity?

Most of the River Road portion of the riverfront, south of Beltline, is part of the West Bank park, stretching from Maurie Jacobs Park to the Owosso Bike Bridge. This park land is managed by the City’s Parks and Open Space Division meaning City park rules apply. For concerns about illegal activity in this area, contact the City’s Park Watch program. The Park Watch website provides statistics on incidents within parks, such as illegal camping and incidents requiring a police response. For maintenance requests on City park land, contact the City’s Public Works Maintenance department.

The Santa Clara portion of the riverfront is outside Eugene’s UGB. A key long-range vision of acquiring additional land along the Willamette River, north of Beltline, is contingent in large part on land acquisition from sand and gravel companies (See the Willamette River Open Space Vision and Action Plan). North-south connectivity along the edge of the UGB can be explored in the meantime.
