Located in the heart of Eugene, Hendricks Park is Eugene’s oldest city park. Known for its world-renowned Rhododendron garden, spring is the perfect time to visit this gem in the city. Towering Rhododendron plants, surrounded by walls of Douglas-fir trees show off dazzling displays of color in the springtime sun.

Just minutes away from Downtown Eugene, this park is great for both quick weeknight excursions and lazy Sunday afternoon picnics. Take a walk on one of the park’s many pathways and experience the buzz of spring with birds singing, lime green leaves budding and wildflowers peaking up from the ground.
