The Eugene Civic Alliance in partnership with local Eugene nonprofit, KidsSports, is building a sports park in Eugene, OR. The land was once home to a historic and treasured baseball park called Civic Park. The plan was to revitalize this community pillar to be a brand-new space for sports and recreation while honoring the tradition of baseball built there in 1938.
Unfortunately, not long after the Eugene Civic Alliance bought the land, tragedy struck and the facility burned down, leaving a desolate ashy void in the community.
Now in 2019, a new sports facility will rise, designed to give the city more life and vitality. Civic Park will provide the community with a space to come together and enjoy the shared experience of watching a local soccer game, enjoying a summer concert, or participating in a neighborhood festival. It will demonstrate to residents and visitors alike that Eugene is a city that values community, health, and play.
