On Friday April 5, my group and I drove together to explore the Downtown Neighborhood of Eugene. Downtown begins with the Willamette River as the northern most point, and goes down to 13th Avenue at the south. Its eastern border begins at High Street, and runs to Lawrence Street, which serves as the western boundary.
We traveled to all of the boundaries on a rainy Friday afternoon around 3:00, taking time to walk around and note the happenings of the neighborhood. Downtown is home to many restaurants, businesses, and entertainment venues. It is also the location of Eugene Station and Eugene Public Library, where one can always find people traveling to and from work or school, or just hanging out and talking.
Even though the weather was less than ideal, people were still out being active and enjoying the beginning of the weekend.
The Downtown Neighborhood of Eugene has it all. Music lovers can catch a show at WOW Hall or McDonald Theatre, while runners can enjoy some peace at Skinner Butte Park.
