City Of Eugene To Close Four Parks In The Next Month

Skinner Butte Park

TheCity of Eugene is set to close four different parks over the next month.

These parks are Charnel Mulligan, Skinner Butte, Amazon and Maurie Jacobs. They will close for renovations, despite summer being the highest traffic season.

Eugene Landscape Architect Emily Proudfoot says the construction is necessary in the upcoming months.

“We have to do most of our construction in warm weather," says Proudfoot. "It can’t be soaking wet and it can’t be cold. The unfortunate reality of that is we end of closing parks, or parts of parks, for these types of major renovations during the summer.”

Skinner Butte Park is set to reopen at the end of July. Amazon and Charnel Mulligan parks will reopen later in the fall.
