Great News! – Phase 1 of Santa Clara Community Park to begin in March

Construction will begin soon for the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space’s new community park along River Loop 2! The work will include construction of an accessible playground, picnic shelter, spray playground, sand playground, parking lot, and restroom. Construction will also include select paths including a 12-foot-wide path connecting Wilkes Drive and River Loop 2 and a pedestrian bridge east of Madison Middle School.

Work is tentatively planned for March 2024 through the end of the year. You may see utility crews, such as EWEB, working in the project area in the weeks leading up to the park’s construction.

Expect traffic delays and street closures during construction. Availability of on-street parking may also be reduced or closed. We apologize for any inconvenience to you during this time.

Funding for this project comes from the 2018 Parks and Recreation bond, an Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Local Government Grant, and the Eugene Parks Foundation.

More information is available on the project webpage  If you have questions, please contact Mark Kosmos, Project Manager, at 541-682-4902 or email  We are looking forward to the construction of this new developed park for the Santa Clara community.
