The hushed, winding road takes you uphill, along the edge of a neighborhood, into the dappled forest. Oregon is known as the land of pointed things - magnificent firs, cedar, alders, dogwoods , ferns and other wild trees. So very green. This visit, just last...More

This is a favorite picnic destination for our crew members. The rhodys are so worth the visit this time of year. Many are decades old. Old growth forest for the canopy, and cool paths to walk through the park. Nice views of the surrounding area...More

Hendricks is a gorgeous park closely located to the University of Oregon. Gentle, winding trails though beautiful flowers and greenery. Best times of the year are the spring and fall.

Yes, even in the rain, the park is beautiful. Plants were happy and smiling. We loved the moss on the trees. Great place to picnic, minus the rain.

Gorgeous. Almost any time of year this park has lovely views of either native plants or HUGE rhodies. If you go in the spring when the rhodies are blooming, you will not be disappointed.

wonderful location on top of a good sized hill just outside the U of O campus. If you are visiting the campus, defintely find time to walk thru the Fir forest on the miles of trails. Great rhody garden. easy access parking can be challenging

Fun little day spot. They do charge for parking. Great place to have an extended picnic with the family. Parking fills up quick, wish they would add a few spots.

Lovely location to walk. Shrubs, flowers and trees are superb. On a hill so ups and downs in pathways but well maintained and doable. One of my favorite sites in Eugene.
