  • This place was really nice. A maze of trails cover the grounds. There is also a public restroom available, no fee to park, and bunch of turkey's that roam the land. There are a good amount of spots to stop and take a seat on a bench and relax. Before you reach the park there is a display of Steve prefontaine's medals, shoes, and even a plaque with a photo. Nice family place to go hiking.
  • I ♥️ this park! The trails are all well groomed and every year they seem to put in new path improvements. And Hendricks Park is Eugene's 1st public park, with some of the Douglas fir trees being over 200 years old.
