A 8.5 acre park next to the Willamette River, with paved trails along the river to the OWEN ROSE GARDEN; over 4,000 roses and a HUGE cherry tree, reportedly planted in 1847! It's a beautiful spot.

Food Scene

Great Thai food. Usually prompt enough that you can eat a quick dinner before going to a movie or play. Might have to wait for a table during popular times.

Parks & Nature

South of town in the trees, hike to the top of Spencer's Butte for a panoramic view of Eugene and well beyond. On the right days you can see the snow capped mountains in the Oregon Cascades! This is a fairly steep hike, especially the switchbacks near the top. You will be in the trees until the top of this 1.7 mile heavily trafficked up and back down trail with about 800' of elevation gain.
