Eugene's over 100-year-old park consists of a world-renowned rhododendron garden, a 65 acre (26 ha) forest, and a native plant garden. Visitors can walk among 200-year-old Douglas fir trees, wildflowers, and over 6,000 varieties of ornamental plants, including azaleas, magnolias and viburnums.

The rhododendron garden features many interwinding paths with benches dispersed throughout. The garden is a major attraction for locals and visitors with peak flowering between April and May. There are over 1,000 rhododendrons in the garden.

Over the last century, Hendricks park has become a more predominately Douglas-fir forest, but it still has remnants of Oak Grove that survived. Multiple gravel trails wind through the forest and offer a quiet place to walk within the city. The Old Road Trail is a paved more accessible path but the terrain is steep. There are multiple restrooms, benches and drinking fountains. Free maps available at www.eugene-or.gov/parks.
