Vandals Tag Fern Ridge Bike Trail

EUGENE, Ore. — The newly constructed bike trail at Garfield and Fern Ridge Bike Trail in west Eugene has already been defaced.

While some say graffiti art is an act of self expression, neighbors are not impressed.

“I’m an artist. Yes, it’s an expression. I’m always real curious what I’m going to see, but it’s not mine so I don’t put anything on it. It doesn’t belong to just me. I’m not free to make that choice. So I don’t appreciate them doing that,” said Eugene resident Kathy Heidrick.

Heidrick adds that she had to grapple with explaining what a swastika is to her 2-year-old grandson.

The area is out of sight to the public. Neighbors are keeping a watchful eye on the area.

    “The area is out of sight to the public.” The area is actually on a heavily used transportation artery. However, it is not very well-lit at night. This is not the same thing.
