Great park with big grassy areas, sand box, play equipment, restrooms, benches and smooth skating surfaces. Great local park. I do my plastic take back there and it often has family events.

Nice park and lots of shade. Free lunch for the kiddos during the summer. There are swings, slides, sandpit, basket ball hoops and a strange concrete area that appears to have been a foutian at one point. History says this whole park used to be an elementary school back in the 60s.There Is tons Of Space For frisbee or kites.Low key and not hipster like Amazon Park. Love this place.

Nice clean park, but it seems to be a hub for the citys homeless. Not a place to bring children.

Too many people who are hanging out with no place to go or nothing to do or possably live on the street and hang out in the day there!

Nice city park. Although like many city parks at times you will find homeless people there. Parks are one of the places people with no other place to be spend daylight hours there...

Its a really pretty park, but its just not as safe as it used to be. Avoid this place after dark, and dont let your kids play barefoot!There may be needles or other drug paraphernalia on the ground or in trash cans.

This parks right down the street from my house. Really nice maintained 1 square block park. Has a playground, basketball courts, and a lot of space to play ball with your pup. Plus this neighborhood is awesome. Lots of good places to eat and shop within walking distance.

Good Place. = Very Weird on the West Side. Im tired of all the Homeless Animals. I had to recently change this review , after being abused by all the dirty animals from the ghetto. From A 5 star.

Review №50

Nice and quiet during night time, however during the day the park is usually occupied by a fair amount of drug addicts. I am not just assuming either, you csn see for yourself if you just go by there and park n just sit and wait 10 or 15 minutes and you will witness numerous drug deals take place right out in the open!

Review №51

This park is pleasant to visit in daylight. But it gets very weird at dark. It seems to be crawling. It does not feel like a safe place to walk my dog in the evening hours. Even though he is an intimidating pit bull.

Weve seen movies in the park here, which was fun. But we were eaten up by mosquitoes. Lots of transients here on off times and the park structures could use an upgrade.

Very quaint. The bums at this park are mellow compared to the other Eugene parks. Not a bad place to stop to eat your snack while on a bike ride, not really a park for kids

Review №62

Really nice well kept park with a playground and two bathrooms. My only gripe is that it is small enough that no matter where you are in the park you are still in eye and earshot of the tweaker drama that seems to lurk at the edges of most city parks. Its a little bit of a fish bowl.

My dog likes this park -the grass and the tall statue- i like this park too.

Ky
Review №65

Has a nice path for the runners, joggers, and dog walkers. A fairly well maintained play area for kids. Nice grass for the homeless to sleep on. And plenty of park benches for crazies to yell at one another at. Over all pretty good during the day, less enjoyable as evening progresses into night. Also, bring your own doggy bags none dispensed or avaliable.

Monroe Park has the old Spirit of Eugene still in it, and its untouched. One of the last places in Eugene like it, and if you want to experience how Eugene used to be go there and sit awhile.

Very well put together park, one of the more busy parks in town, right down the road from downtown. Allowed to bring your pups, (dog friendly). Awesome art installation, swings, playground, some basketball courts,and even a some trees to hammock in if thats your thing.All in all a nice park, with friendly people all over.

Review №71

The grounds are well kept but sometimes homeless people are sleeping there during the day. Id run them off but I dont like to. There are better parks.

Ha
Review №72

It wouldnt be so bad if it didnt have such a stagnant energy hovering upon it. Its played out park Im my opinion because I feel like the Police and local Government have allowed themselves to become these lurkers that act as if everyone else is the problem. F.y.i. its not everyone else. If people didnt have to worry to be harassed, the park would be a lot more welcoming.

We showed up & an ambulance was hauling out a heroin mishap and whilst sitting there around 830pmish on bench enjoying the night and amusement of the park foot traffic and twitter around us.Although I would not come here alone even in the daytime and I would always watch where I stepped.

Review №75

This park is a gem and a great place to go for many reasons but the best is Eugene Parks and Recreation programs for youth which are fully funded, provide all day play and one on one time for many families in need and lunch programs. More police presence but friendly reminders of rules than full on surveillance has improved quality and open spaces with screening hills, toddler amenities and bathrooms (rarely open, however) during events like movies, and often whole community celebrations makes it as great as the neighborhood.

Every other day I take my dog for a walk through this park and we get on the Merry-Go-Round together. I can be so quiet on the Monday mornings early Sunday morning.

Great park with a decent playground. Usually a steady stream of parents and kids. The only downside is the homeless problem that Eugene is inadequately dealing with.
