2018 Bond and Levy

Parks staff has been working on everything from strengthening safety and security efforts and increasing park maintenance, to planning park renovations and the creation of new parks in underserved areas. Recreation is moving forward with big renovations and expansions of their own.

Lincoln School Park Renovation

Located a block north of the Fairgrounds on 12th Avenue, construction on this park renovation will start in December 2023 and continue through summer 2024. New park amenities will include paths, park furniture, a new playground, an adult fitness area and more.

Santa Clara Park

With a master plan finalized, the development for this 35-acre park will begin soon. Development will include a large playground, restroom, walking trails, lawn, and places for community gatherings. A recent $528,000 grant will go toward supporting  construction of the soft-surface walking trails and the bike/pedestrian path connectivity through the park.

Striker Field Park

Now open! This new eight-acre park now features a large playground, basketball court, pickleball, pétanque, restrooms, picnic shelter, walking paths and space for community gatherings. 

Suzanne Arlie Ridgeline Trail and Access

With a master plan completed, the largest park in Eugene (515 acres) will soon include a 2-mile extension of the main Ridgeline shared-use trail and a new trailhead accessible from Lane Community College. A recent $1.2 million grant will go toward phase one of the development - the ridgeline trail connection and mountain bike amenities. Construction on phase one is expected to begin in 2024.
