EUGENE, Ore. -- The city of Eugene unveiled a draft of their vision for its parks system, for the next 10 to 30 years.

More than 12,000 Eugene residents helped shape the plan. It includes new and renovated parks and trails, better access to the Willamette River, revitalized pools and community centers and improved natural areas.

All said, there are more than 250 projects included.

"Parks and recreation system is really important to Eugene’s quality of life,” said Carolyn Burke with parks and open spaces. “It's important for our own health and wellness, for our economy, for our youth and for the environment."


City councilors will consider moving two funding measures to the May 2018 ballot on Monday to pay for the plan.
