Nature / Park
Hendricks Park is the oldest city park in Eugene, Oregon, United States. The 78acre park is a little over a mile away from the University of Oregon campus, and contains mature forest, a world-renowned 12acre rhododendron garden, and a native plant garden. The park is laced with trails suitable for hiking, jogging, and birding.In 1997, the city of Eugene responded to neighbors' concerns of falling trees by felling potentially hazardous trees on the park's eastern boundary. When other nearby residents and park lovers objected, the city stopped removing trees and formed a committee to study the issue. As a result of the committee's work, City Councilor Laurie Swanson-Gribscov was able to persuade the council to commit up to $50,000 for a long-range management plan for Hendricks Park's trees and forest.In 2000, the city council enacted the Hendricks Park Forest Management Plan. With its implementation, park staff have worked in partnership with the Friends of Hendricks Park and other community volunteers to help achieve a healthy, resilient, and sustainable forest.

  • Fantastic wooded park for walking, trail running, and for a simply, peaceful time. Many different trails and networks that you can use for your long runs. Has water fountains and relatively cleaner bathrooms.
  • I love this park; it's so tranquil and nice but it's kind of hard to get to if you're not familiar with the area.
  • In my honest opinion, this is the most magical spot and Eugene! everything is so well kept up with! So sad about the last ice storms and the swings being gone though. :'(
  • Beautiful, quiet, serene, peaceful little garden park. It was raining the day I went but the flowers were starting to bloom, the people were respectful of the park and it was a nice place to go for a walk
  • Great back drop for pictures! an amazing place to walk the trail and see plant after plant welcoming the spring! Also has great views of Eugene. Easy to reach. Trails are easy to walk. Lots of open area for picnic, lounging, playing etc. . . . Keep your pet on a leash!
