“Love the interpretive boards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

The park is a nice large quiet space for recreation and to get away from the city, even though Eugene is not that big.

There is a fantastic display of American Nobel Peace Prize winners, as well as displays for some of the planets of the solar system, the rest of which are down the Willamette River.

I biked through the park, but it would have been nice to run on Pre's Trail.

“Beautiful park along river with Ducks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

This really is a beautiful park Ali g the river with many trails. There's ducks and geese to feed. The only drawback is some transients around at times. Otherwise a very fun park to come to with little ones for the ducks and just to walk around!

“Great park, not enough trash cans on the paths”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Love the trails for running and biking. Always a pretty good presence of people on the paths, so safety is never really a concern. That said, there are an abundance of transients from Springfield to Eugene, who camp frequently close to the trails, much to the dismay of residents. Wish there were more trash cans, especially on the Eugene side.

“Great trails for the avid runner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

I am an avid runner and made Eugene a part of my trip to the northwest solely because of it's deep running history. I went for my morning run at Alton Baker Park on Pre's Trail and loved the woodchip surface! The trail is long enough that repeating a few times gets you a decent length run and a neat place to see a bunch of runners. I'm sure I would tire of it if I lived here, but a great place to make a point for a run or two! The bathroom stalls that have no doors in the women's room are a bit weird.

“Run or Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Walking distance from B & B. Great trails. Great way to explore the area. Went for a walk/run. A little hiking involved as it climbs upward.
