EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene Civic Alliance is getting closer to finishing the first phase of constructing the new Civic Park.

Phase one is still short $5 million, but Co-Director Nancy Webber said she's hopeful they will reach their fundraising goal.

The new park is being built on the site of the old Civic Stadium, which burned down in June 2015.

Leading up to breaking ground on the project, the Civic Alliance set out to raise $30 million for the park, and reached the 80 percent mark before beginning construction last year.

"I am so grateful to the people of Eugene that helped us get through the fire, and helped us raise all this money and have been so positive all throughout this process, and I know they're looking forward to games on the field," Webber said. 

The turf field, kids field house and parking lot of Civic Park are expected to open to the public in the spring.
