Alton Baker Park, Eugene’s largest developed park
An indispensable part of the Eugene landscape since 1959. Located on the banks of the Willamette River directly across from the University of Oregon, Alton Baker has provided a place for denizens of Eugene to bike, run, feed ducks and take their dogs for over fifty years. Alton Baker’s uses and facilities have continued to grow as the city of Eugene has, with the park adding several features in recent years. Alton Baker now boasts its own concert venue and has biking and walking trails that connect all over the Eugene and Springfield area, a canoe canal, a BMX track, Disc Golf course as well as an undeveloped and natural eastern section to the park, for those wishing to get away from civilization. Alton Baker Park consists of around 400 acres of forest, fields, plains and trails, and is a great place for relaxing, picnicking and experiencing nature.
