This park is big and has a playground, a rose garden, viewpoint on the river and a footbridge that goes to Valley River Center shopping mall. You can have a picnic, watch the ducks (dont feed them), and enjoy the peace and quiet of the park.

Part of the Eugene Oregon bike trails alongside the Willamette River, Mori Jacobs Park is just one of many to ride through or to arrive at with children in hand for a good Saturday afternoon. Even in the darker months (PNW life) - it has open, inviting, and is kept very clean. Summertime events make it even better. If youre a runner, stroller, or biker - this is a staple and an example of what river parks look like in mid-tier cities. 5 out of 5 stars.

This Taco Bell is okay. I dont think its entirely the staffs fault though. I think taco bells quality has gone down just in general. The crew members are friendly and always get our order right so thats great!

It is a good park. If i had a child, i would want that child to posses the qualities that i see in this park. It is pleasing to look at. Others enjoy being in its presence. It is quiet and peaceful.

Great park!! It is not what you think based on the area before you turn off to the park. Beautifully manicured with a bike path and awesome footbridge across the river. There are tons of places to access the river. Just make sure you respect the cyclists. They move fast!

A very pleasant park! Plenty of pretty paths to prance down, and a plethora of palatable patches of grass to perch upon

Beautiful rose garden to walk through and view, nice wooded path along river to rollerblade, ride bike, walk, or run with bridge that crosses river if you want to stroll over to mall and catch some shopping or dine out at one of the many nice restaurants. Definitely a fun filled afternoon to enjoy!!!

One of the most beautiful parts of the Greenway. The fall colors are spectacular and the trees provide a buffer that shields from the cold river air.

Walked from the Valley River mall bridge to the rose garden and back again. Fairly well shaded, especially when we walked more toward the rivers side. Played some chess at one of the picnic tables.Only downside is the cement table ate at my uncovered elbows.

I used to live just up the street from here. I have always loved this area and the easy access to the river when your on foot, or in a wheelchair like I am now. It took a little more work now that Im in a , but it was worth it.

Large city park with Riverside trails, some secluded beach/swimholes, and a. footbridge over the Willamette River to Valley River Center. it is a well maintained, very pretty park, that is used mostly by local residents.A lot less busy than other better known Willamette river parks, well worth the trip!

Very nice, clean, and well maintained. Was there pretty early in the day (before 8am) and there werent too many sketchy characters hanging around. Everyone was on their way to somewhere.Lots of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite offerings, from inns to fortresses, to things I hadnt encountered before. You know, if you play. ️

I love it here any time of year. It brings peace, and calming to your soul from its beauty and the the views! I have been coming here for as long as I can remember. I have many great memories here. I have taken some of my best floral pics here, and its just a great place to go burn off lunch walking through the paths.It is kind of a bonus to just sit and listen to, and watch the birds.

One of Eugenes large connected well kept river parks. All connected by a well lit concrete bike & pedestrian path that goes literally miles & miles on both river banks. All the way to Jasper Ore. Beautiful !

Stunningly beautiful day at park. The playground is pretty bare basics, but there was almost no one there so the kid got to have a blast. The bridge was very much a hit with the kid too and the park seems to close to some other cool places.

Loved going to this Park ... My favorite thing was the bridge that goes over the river to Valley River Center ... Its wheelchair accessible and fun to go over the river ... The park is good sized and always seems busy ... Lots of grassy area with not much trees in the center areas ..

Youll find an eclectic mix of Eugenians here. Plus great bike and walking trails. If there is any doubt that Eugene is progressive, consider that they built a biking/walking bridge across the Willamette in 1978!

Beautiful scenery, park and river invite you on a bike path that keeps you several degrees cooler as you navigate either side of the river in either direction. Several breath taking rest stops on a journey that you never want to end.
