Skinner Butte Park Reviews & Ratings
Given the difficult weather in this area is it a bit amazing that this trail is consistently in good repair. Great views, not very crowded. But you have to walk up the same way you walk back. Not too steep, good for kids.
Easily one of the best parks I have ever been too. You can hike the Butte with the family and check out the view of Eugene. You might spot a Turkey Vulture or Bald Eagle. The trails are easy enough for children. You can walk or ride on the bike path along the river. You can even rent a bike there with an app. It's really fun I recommend it. The playground is new and amazing. They have so many different activities you could keep your child entertained all day. There is a ton of grassy areas as well to play sports or get groovy with flow arts. The owen rose garden, skatepark and community garden are all within a close walk. The only thing is that the restrooms don't have doors on the stalls. But overall magical!
Possibly the best park I've taken my 11 year old to. She loved it! Definitely going again.
Beautifully laid out with a lot of seating scattered throughout the park. Views of the Willamette river are lovely. Play area for children is well thought out.
This was by far one of the nicest parks we have taken our son to. The equipment itself was outstanding. It was a very well built and great playground. I was amazed at the size of it as well as the different areas. The folks that had their kids there at the same time we did we super polite and kept a watchful and mindful eye on their kids at all times, a pleasant surprise. Over all it was fantastic!
