Nestled between the Fifth Street Public Market and the Whitaker District lies Skinner’s Butte & Park , one of the gems of Eugene.  Steeped in history and blessed by abundant natural beauty, it’s a unique place and worth experiencing.


Running from the Willamette River at its northern boundary, to the Butte itself at the southern boundary, the park consists of over 100 acres, popular with residents and tourists alike, for a myriad of uses


Uses, ranging from:    A pretty place to enjoy a picnic,      A workout while rock climbing or hiking

Uses, ranging from:   A place to soak in the vistas of Eugene,     Where to see the birth spot of Eugene



Uses, ranging from:     Trails to bike or walk by the Willamette River,    And even a place to grow your own vegetables.

Skinner’s Butte has been around forever, or close to it, namely millions of years.  More recently, within the last 200 years
