Maps & Guides to Eugene, Cascades & Coast



Summer weekends and holidays bring some congestion to popular trailheads and shopping centers, but generally, parking is easy across the region. If you do encounter a full lot, please do not park out-of-stall and along sensitive and unsafe road shoulders. Instead, choose a lesser known destination and try to come back during off-peak days or hours for more fun without the crowds. If you need ideas of where to go off the beaten path, contact our visitor center for tips.


Federal and county parks and points of interest frequently require parking permits. Always plan ahead to make sure you have the proper parking permits in advance as it may not be possible to purchase permits on-site. This includes sno parks and day use fees. 

Downtown Eugene Parking

In downtown Eugene, find downtown parking spaces using the Park Smarter app, which also allows you to pay the meter. Parking around the downtown core includes public parking lots and curbside metered parking. The Overpark and Parcade parking garages offer one free hour during the week and all day free parking on Saturday and Sunday unless there is a special event.

The Whiteaker Neighorhood

This popular fermentation district is a residential neighborhood with many craft breweries, wineries, distilleries and great restaurants. Parking is very limited in "The Whit", so be kind and do not block residents' driveways. Better yet, carpool or take public transportation, particularly if you plan to imbibe some of the neighborhood's signature craft beer, wine and spirits.
