Thank you, community members, for voicing your strong support for the future of Eugene Parks and Rec. The bond and levy have passed! Parks staff has begun 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. In Recreation, staff has started development on plans for renovations to Echo Hollow Pool and Campbell Community Center, and Phase 1 of a future Sports Complex.
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.
The Parks and Recreation System Plan is a 30-year strategic plan with implementation recommendations for the first 10 years. The plan includes new parks and trails, improved access to the Willamette River, revitalized pools and community centers, and more recreation opportunities in underserved areas.
More than 12,000 Eugeneans helped shape the plan during a vigorous and inclusive outreach process that garnered two citizen engagement awards for the City.
