Eugene Oregon Attractions

Deadwood Bridge
The architectural elements of Deadwood Bridge are quite unique. Flooring was installed on a slant so that traffic rounding the corner onto the bridge would travel more safely. Other elements include false end beams, semi-elliptical portal arches with trim, and large openings along the west elevation. The cost to build the bridge totaled $4,814, and it became a part of the state's secondary road system.

Dexter State Recreation Site
Zipping down Highway 58 east of Eugene, you'll suddenly find yourself on driving along side a long, skinny reservoir. In spring, summer and fall, the Dexter and Lookout Point Reservoirs are dotted with boats. Whether you like to fish or boat, you'll find a pair of convenient day-use parks on the lake.

  

Elijah Bristow State Park
Elijah Bristow State Park is located on the Willamette River, and is easily to reach via State Highway 58 southeast of the Eugene. The park was named for one of the first pioneer settlers in Lane County and is comprised of 847 acres of scattered meadows, woodlands and wetlands. Elijah Bristow has more than 10 miles of trail for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. Part of the trail system includes a portion of the Eugene to Pacific Crest trail.

George E. Owen Memorial Garden
Fanning out along a bend in the river near downtown Eugene, the garden is a bright jewel in a long string of popular Eugene waterfront parks. More then 100,000 people a year pass through the garden. The nine acres were once the property of George Owen, a lumberman and philanthropist. Owen donated the land to Eugene, which began planting roses there in 1950.

Jasper State Recreation Site

The park has plenty of room for games, picnics, fishing ... sounds like the perfect place to hold a family reunion, doesn't it? The reservable group shelters come complete with covered cooking facilities.

Lake Creek Bridge
The Lake Creek Covered Bridge is often referred to as the Nelson Mountain Bridge because it is located on Nelson Mountain Road. Like many covered bridges, both the upper and lower chords are one piece old-growth timbers. The lower timbers measure 14" x 14" x 111 feet and the upper timbers measure 12" x 12" x 79 feet.  The bridge was rehabilitated in 1984. Contractors replaced the wooden flooring with pre-cast concrete slab decking. Because the concrete flooring and center pier do not support the trusses, a crane was required to slide the slabs into place. The wooden abutments and trestle approaches were also replaced with concrete material.
