Our community has voiced its support for the future of Eugene Parks and Rec with the $39.35 million bond and $3.15 million levy passed in May 2018. Now we are taking the first steps to bring the 30-year System Plan vision to life.

Background Information

Rec is hard at work on our bond goals of caring for and making the most of what we have and serving the entire community. We have begun the design phases of the two top bond priorities: renovations and expansions to Campbell Community Center and Echo Hollow Pool & Fitness Center. Below is an update on both projects.

These are just the first steps in a much larger 30 year System Plan that was created based on feedback you’ve given us over the last three years.

Over the coming months and years, we will be asking for your thoughts once again on specific projects as we start to dig in. Stay tuned, and thanks again for your vote of support!

Sheldon Exterior Perspective

Sheldon Pool & Fitness Center to reopen Sept. 26

The long-awaited reopening will start with a phased reintroduction of programming. The 55-year-old facility in the Cal Young neighborhood closed in late Spring 2021 for expansion and renovation, thanks to funding from the Parks and Recreation Bond measure passed by Eugene voters in May 2018.

“We’re really excited to finally unveil Sheldon Pool to the community,” Recreation Director Craig Smith said. “The unique warm-water pool and current channel provide versatile programming space that serves fitness, recreation and swim lesson needs. The Sheldon Pool renovation creates program opportunities that don’t exist at Echo Hollow or Amazon, meaning they're a good addition to our overall aquatics' services.”  Read more about the renovation.
