Welcome to Eugene!
Despite having one of the larger populations in Oregon, Eugene maintains its small town charm. Long growing seasons and mild winters support the cities numerous wineries, including Silvan Ridge Hinman Vineyards, one of Oregon's largest wineries. Surrounded by over 2,500 acres (1011 ha) of wetlands, over 30 mi (48 km) of creeks and waterways and hundreds of acres of upland forests, Eugene has miles of biking, jogging and hiking trails. Located in the Willamette Valley, Eugene offers a variety of fishing opportunities, from fly fishing to lake fishing. The Saturday Market runs from April through November, providing a colorful taste of Eugene with food booths, an array of locally produced crafts and entertainment for children. Alton Baker Park, home to dozens of recreational activities and facilities, is a must see. The park features the Ken Nielsen Gardens, the Science Factory Children's Museum & Planetarium, the Cuthbert Amphitheater, a BMX track, the Hays Memorial Tree Garden and a boat launch.
