Founded in 1905, Hendricks Park is the oldest city park in Eugene. Hendricks is home to an extensive rhododendron garden that was founded in 1951, and has many unusual rhododendron species and hybrids, as well as a unique view of campus. The pavilion area at the east end of the park typically plays host to guided tours throughout the year, keep an eye on the City of Eugene website for more info about these!
From the EMU, travel east to Agate Street, then turn south to enter the East Campus neighborhoods. Keep an eye out for alleyways to spice up the route! Once you've arrived at the park, check out the Rhododendron garden, the Ribbon Trail, or the many other trails that weave through the area. While the map here will help you get to the park, look for the larger map below with detailed trail markings!
