“The mission of the Eugene Parks Foundation is to enhance public parks, open spaces, recreation facilities, and recreation services for the benefit of Eugene area residents.”

About Us

Since Eugene’s first park was established more than 100 years ago, parks and recreation have become an essential part of how we define our community.

Recreation Scholarships

Many in Eugene cannot afford to take advantage of the city’s fee-based recreational programs. Your gift will help kids join in fun activities.

Planned Giving

Planned or deferred giving enables you to arrange charitable contributions in a manner that maximizes personal objectives and financial goals.

Legacy Land Fund

Spencer Butte, Hendricks, Skinner Butte, Owen Rose Garden, and Alton Baker parks have all become keystones of the Eugene Parks System. 

Friends of the Ridgeline

The goal of Friends of the Ridgeline is to support the development and maintenance of the ridgeline preservation and trail corridor from Mt Pisgah to Fern Ridge. 

Riverloop Connection

One of the best known and most frequently used portions of Eugene’s parks and open space system is the 12-mile Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path.

Serving Our Community

The Eugene Parks Foundation has a wonderful history of supporting area parks, facilitating improvements and new features.
