Rec Bond Projects
Our community has voiced its support for the future of Eugene Parks and Rec with the $39.35 million bond and $3.15 million levy passed in May 2018. Now we are taking the first steps to bring the 30-year System Plan vision to life.
Rec is hard at work on our bond goals of caring for and making the most of what we have and serving the entire community. We have begun the design phases of the two top bond priorities: renovations and expansions to Campbell Community Center and Echo Hollow Pool & Fitness Center. Below is an update on both projects.
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.
Over the coming months and years, we will be asking for your thoughts once again on specific projects as we start to dig in. Stay tuned, and thanks again for your vote of support!

Join us to learn about the final designs for the renovation and expansion of Echo Hollow Pool & Fitness Center. Construction will begin this winter on renovations and additions to the facility. The existing six-lane indoor pool will be renovated, the outdoor pool will be expanded and a new seasonal outdoor recreation pool will be added as well. Many of the facility’s amenities will be upgraded as well. The locker rooms will be renovated and expanded, there will be a new entry lobby and office space and the building’s will receive energy upgrades. The new-look Echo Hollow Pool will be able to accommodate more lessons, programs and the competitive swimming needs of the community, and it’s all thanks to the Eugene Parks and Rec $39.5 million bond and $3.15 million levy passed in May 2018. Thank you, voters!
Updating the City's only indoor competitive swimming pool is important. Along with renovating the tank, look for the fitness pool and other amenities to be updated.
