What to See and Do

With its strategic location, the Eugene-Springfield area offers an abundance of things to do places to go and sights to see, and you don’t have to go very far. In the mood for exercise? Try a quick jog around our many neighborhood parks, or for a full run on a professional-quality trail.

For shopping, browse among one-of-a-kind mini-boutiques at our legendary Saturday Market ; every Saturday from April through December. Poke your head into a downtown shop or visit Oakway Center, Valley River Center, 5th Street Market and Gateway Mall.

Activities abound for the kids as well. Check out the WAVE swimming and-wading pool, romp in the grass on the banks of the river, or steer that skateboard to one of our fine, specially built skateboard facilities.

Cultural pursuits take center stage in our area. Take in a live performance at a local community theater, or catch a visit from one of the international stars whose talents are showcased at the internationally acclaimed Hult Center for the Performing Arts. Connect with the local arts and culture community by logging on to Eugene A Go-Go, an online community with calendars and information on the rich cultural tapestry of the Eugene area.  

Step into one of the many galleries displaying the works of local, regional and international artists. Or visit the vibrant Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon. Then tune into the fine musicians at a variety of clubs, pubs and restaurants in the Eugene-Springfield area. And that’s just around town.
