Let's Show We Care about University Park! Take this Short Survey 

SUN UP LogoUniversity Park has not been rennovated in over 60 years. It used to be a thriving, inviting park with a working wading pool and activity areas of interest. Now it underutilized and desperately in need of upgrades. The City of Eugene Department of Parks and Recreation is on the cusp of creating the plans and budgets for the next 10 years. University Park will NOT be a part of that plan unless they hear from residents that the park is important to us. To that end, the South University Neighborhood Association invites your participation in a short survey about how, or if, you use the park and what you would like to see in a new and improved University Park. Please follow this link and share it with friends and neighbors: Without extensive community input NOW, we will not have a University Park that we can be proud of in the future! Questions? Contact

Thank you, Edison Community, from the South University Neighborhood Association for supporting the Edison Little Free Library project!
