Hendricks Park

Review №1

This is a top destination on my visitor site seeing list. Lots of different trail options in the park for various fitness levels making it fun for the whole family. A must see for for anyone interested in varieties of rhododendron or azaleas. Lots of other native plants to enjoy all year round. We’ve rented the covered shelter for events and found the process easy to accommodate and enjoyed the large benches, sink with power and fireplace for cozy gatherings spring- fall. Parking is pretty limited so car pooling is highly recommended.

Me and the wife loved this park. Although when we went is was 2017 and haven’t been back in town to go again. So I wouldn’t know what it’s like today. But it was beautiful and well kept. Laid in the grass and enjoyed the sun when we went. It was perfect.

Review №3

I go to this park all the time to walk my dog and I love the little trails. Almost like getting to hike, but more convenient and less strenuous. Theres a decently clean restroom and picnic tables, as well as a setting set. Go in spring to see the rhododendron garden in bloom or any time of year to get beautiful views of the city. The only complaint I have is that dogs are not allowed in the rhododendron garden, even on leash, which stinks.

Its a fun place to hike. There Different trails you can take

Review №5

Love going up to Hendricks. Sometimes Ill walk the trails, but mostly I just go to the park and enjoy the views. Bathrooms were sanitary the last time I went in. Its a beautiful park to take a date up to with a picnic.

Review №6

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 turkeys 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 prefontaines medals, shoes, and even a plaque with a photo. Nice family place to go hiking.

Review №7

Great park. Lots of flora and fauna to appreciate . Nice variety of mycological specimens in the area. . Great place for a stroll

Review №8

The gentle trails through the beautiful and varied collection of rhododendron are renown at this park. The cool breeze through the trees makes relaxing here a pleasure. We enjoyed a picnic late in the day at the picnic shelter (which may be reserved at times), and had a wonderful time.

Review №9

A great place. Many trails! A play area. Parking. Flowers, bushes. Great for hiking, walking, jogging

Review №10

Beautiful park with lots of plant plaques. Be careful on the forest trails; I had a homeless guy step out of the woods and block me from passing. I had to turn around and go back.

Review №11

This place is gorgeous. Watch out in May though... The pollen is real. After coming to this gorgeous park -- I couldnt breath the next day. Smell the flowers they say... Its hard to resist. Its so gorgeous here.

Review №12

We loved it! I cant believe its right in town!

Review №13

Its so beautiful and lush! A great place to take the family out and enjoy nature.

Review №14

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.

Review №15

How am I not here every freaking day? I grew up in New York City and my standard for parks is high. A sanctuary for though, quite reflection, a place where it is ok to be doing nothing, to be active, to observe nature, to have intimate talks, focused discussion or aimless exploration, this park has to be one of the best Ive ever been to. I will return here to read study meditate walk briskly and bring a person who Id like to have an active talk with. Love this space.

Review №16

Its nice here for the most part. Great place to take my ferret for walks if there and not to many dogs around.

Review №17

Beautiful shelter with a fireplace an big heavy tables.

Review №18

The hikes are really peaceful and beautiful! Enjoy hiking here! ️

Review №19

Such a beautiful day for outdoor Stations of the Cross. Happy Good Friday. May the Lord Bless us all!

Review №20

I always enjoy my visits to this park -rhododendrons in the spring, maples and iron woods in the fall, and the native garden takes my heart all year round. There are trails going through the forested section that I highly recommend for running, walking a dog (be sure to keep them out of the rhododendron and native gardens please), or simply seeking some peace. Hendricks Park is a gem in our area, and one that is well worth visiting.

Review №21

Beautiful, large park with themed gardens and a small pavilion. Reminds me of mini Central Park. I proposed to my fiance here and it was a perfect, picturesque spot right in Eugene.

Review №22

Lovley place flowers are beautiful when you go in spring or in summer, wild animals roam around and theres a very beautiful family of turkeys that wander around.

Review №23

I ️ this park! The trails are all well groomed and every year they seem to put in new path improvements.And Hendricks Park is Eugenes 1st public park, with some of the Douglas fir trees being over 200 years old.

Review №24

Cool little park. Could use a little more open space for Sun.

Review №25

Beautiful public spaces to walk, hike, and have a picnic. The gardens are gorgeous in Spring especially, and provide free activities for everyone.

Review №26

Before moving to Eugene I would have never believed that a park of this size and quality could exist inside a city. The area is well maintained beautifully landscaped. Whether Ive come for a picnic, walk, or to read a book Ive never been disappointed by my experience.

Review №27

Awesome place in the middle of the city and good location just not so hot on parking

Review №28

This park is beautiful and has great, free parking. Bring a mask as some trails can become narrow and you cant keep 6 ft away.

Review №29

Such a beautiful park with a lovely diversity of plants, animals and people.

Review №30

A very beautiful park. Deserving of an afternoon stroll at any time of the year, but especially in the spring and early summer when so many of the Rhodies (an other flowers) are blooming.Paths are more accessible for those needing mobility aids than most parks.Two sets of restroom facilities that I am aware of.Great for family gatherings, romantic picnics, and more.Even a favorite spot for photographers. Theres no shortage of botanical beauty!

Review №31

Still beautiful and worth the bike ride. Thank you, City Works!

Review №32

Hendricks Park is beautiful! The flowers were stunning and the weather was perfect. Took some many pictures

Beautiful park with good trails. Some are strolls through rhododendron gardens, others are more robust trails through low hills. Theres a covered gathering area for reservation and several picnic tables. All around a great spot to relax alone, on a romantic trail walk, or with your dog.

Incredible oasis of nature tucked neatly between beautiful residential neighborhoods. The views are stunning, the park is so lush that unless there is a deluge its still nice to walk in the rain.

Review №61

If you have ever wondered what a waterfall would look like if it was made of flowers, you can find a dozen here in various shades of gorgeous.

Review №62

I grew up in a small town in the mountains. This park reminds me of the forest that surrounded my hometown. Its a great place to seek out peace and quiet in the winter when nobody else cares to venture out. In the spring, everyone and their dog-literally-is there. The water fountains are shut off so its boyb. But, there Is open bathrooms with t.p. Thank goodness!

Review №63

My favorite park in Eugene. This place is exceptional in Spring when the rhododendrons are in bloom. There are a ton of variety of rhododendrons here. Every color one can imagine, every size.If youre looking for a park with peaceful esthetic and tremendous effort with the landscape beauty youve found the spot.

Review №82

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.

Review №83

Great place for picnics

Review №84

Beautiful park with a wide variety of habitat areas, gorgeous Rhody garden, and well laid easy to walk paths.

Review №85

Beautiful park, also connects to Ridgeline Trail System. Visit in the Spring to see the Rhododendrons.

Review №86

Beautiful and serene green lawn area serves as centerpiece. It slopes down into the various gardens and trails. Perfect spot for a picnic or just meeting with old friends. The rhododendrons are profuse with color in early spring but something is always putting on a show during the growing season; right now, its the stately Acanthus. Lots of ways up and down for biking and running that offer scenic vistas of the river valley, the university, and the quiant, manicured neighborhoods that ensconce the park.

Review №87

Well kept, great trails, good hills as well. Even in the winter very nice.

Review №88

This well loved city park provides easy respite from town life. There is a nice view point, rhododendrons blooming in abundance in spring, well tended walking paths, slow drive through, stone event shelter, lots of trees and filtered light. There are yearly volunteer groups who clear out invasive species. Highly recommend.

The park was beautiful this morning. I met a mom & four kids who were hiding rocks they had painted. I thanked them & told them what a great way to share love & kindness.

Review №93

Amazing climb I took through the town up the little community of homes near it. Just very beautiful, creative homes. Not a bunch of cookie cutters if you catch my drift.Once up there I saw the gardens and then declined into what they call the forest, and wow amazing trees.very wonderful and very much making me see it is time to quit smoking
