    Construction will begin soon for the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space’s new community park along River Loop 2.

    The work will include construction of the universally accessible playground, picnic shelter, spray playground, sand playground, parking lot, and restroom.

    Construction will also include select paths including a 12-foot-wide path connecting Wilkes Drive and River Loop 2 and a pedestrian bridge east of Madison Middle School.

    Construction Schedule

    Work is tentatively planned for March 2024 through the end of the year. You may see utility crews, such as EWEB, working in the project area in the weeks leading up to the park construction.

    Traffic Impacts

    Expect traffic delays and street closures during construction. Availability of on-street parking may also be reduced or closed. We apologize for any inconvenience to you during this time.

    Project Funding

    Funding for this project comes from the 2018 Parks and Recreation bond, an Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Local Government Grant, and the Eugene Parks Foundation.

    Phase 1 of the Santa Clara Community Park is currently completing the construction documentation phase. The project will be advertised for bid in early September of 2023 and there may be some light construction activity over the winter on the restroom building. A majority of the park construction will pick up in the Spring of 2024 with the goal of opening the park in early to mid 2025. Selective tree removal will begin in August to coincide with the development plans for phase 1 construction of the park.
