At over 400 acres, this is Eugene's largest developed park. The first parcel of land was purchased by Lane County in the late 19th century; the remaining acreage was acquired in the early 1960s. Alton Baker Park gets its name from the original publisher of Eugene's Register Guard. The park is divided into two distinct areas, the natural East Alton Baker Park and the more developed West Alton Baker Park. Enjoy miles of trails in addition to vast green lawns, ponds, and picnic areas.
