What belongs at the center of a city?

Its people, of course!

On the one hand, a Town Square is a place to showcase the best of Eugene, a place to tell the story of our history, our culture and our aspirations to all the world; on the other, it’s a place for the community to gather, a place for all Eugeneans to feel at home, and a park for the downtown neighborhood. In fact, a Town Square is where all of this comes together—it’s a place for people.

What is the Eugene Town Square?

The Eugene Town Square will transform the Park Blocks at 8th Avenue and Oak Street into a dynamic public place, bringing our diverse community together year-round. Today, the Park Blocks are famous for hosting the Eugene Saturday Market and Lane County Farmers Market. The Town Square will look to build on these popular events by giving a permanent home to the Farmers Market and making improvements to the Park Blocks to support the vibrant Eugene Saturday Market. Eugene’s City Hall will be built as a part of the Town Square, facing on to a restored Park Block that has been covered up by the Butterfly Parking Lot for the last 50 years. 

By giving a permanent, covered home to the Farmers Market a new site for the Eugene City Hall and improvements to the Park Blocks, the Town Square will become the front porch of our city, our civic center; a beautiful place to gather, play and celebrate everything wonderful and unique about our city.
