24,000 native plants added to Downtown Riverfront Park
In January, the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space kicked off a planting effort that will add 24,000 native plants to the Downtown Riverfront Park.
In the process of turning this neglected industrial land into an active, urban park, the City of Eugene has undertaken significant riverbank and habitat work to enhance one of our proudest assets. Ecological restoration work has included remediation of contaminated soil, grading work to lessen the slope of the river's steep bank, and removal of invasive species.
This summer, the second phase will begin with construction of the new park features including paths, furniture, new landscapes and overlooks. The park is projected to open in spring 2021.
