Hendricks Park Reviews & Ratings
This place was really nice. A maze of trails cover the grounds. There is also a public restroom available, no fee to park, and bunch of turkey's that roam the land. There are a good amount of spots to stop and take a seat on a bench and relax. Before you reach the park there is a display of Steve prefontaine's medals, shoes, and even a plaque with a photo. Nice family place to go hiking.
I ♥️ this park! The trails are all well groomed and every year they seem to put in new path improvements. And Hendricks Park is Eugene's 1st public park, with some of the Douglas fir trees being over 200 years old.
Hendricks Park (aka Rhododendron Park) is lovely. Located on a hillside above the University area, this park features well-maintained paths and a beautiful park-like lawn, perfect for weddings or picnics. We like to come here from April to June, when the rhodies are at their peak. Across the road from the rhododendron garden are some great trails, if you prefer a hike.
My first time here and I brought my kids with for a quick walk just to get out since it had been rainy for about a week. It’s a nice place to go for a walk with a nice little hike. We went to the rhododendron garden and a lot of trees, flowers etc weren’t blooming so it wasn’t as colorful as I had expected it to be but the ones that were, were beautiful. Definitely going back in about a month or so to see if there’s a change.
Great place! I always bring my friends to here once they first come to Eugene , and they all love here!
