My family is relocating to Eugene and I'm a little bit overwhelmed with trying to figure out which area/neighborhood we want to live in. I'd love to hear some suggestions from people familiar with the area.
What are some of the better neighborhoods for families with young children (preschool/early elem.)? We're pretty active, so I want a safe neighborhood where you see people out and about (where the kids can ride their bikes and we can walk to a park...). Good schools are important of course. Nearby running trails would be a big plus.
If there are any areas to avoid, I'd also love to hear your opinions.

Read around the forums and you'll find lots of info on neighborhoods. Eugene's different areas are pretty distinctive. From the city of eugene website there are also neighborhood association newsletters and misc. Reading those should give you a good idea as well. Since you have kids, I'd recommend you go to the 4J website and read on the different educational options you have. Eugene has lots of choice for parents. The language immersion schools are wonderful and there are many other opportunities. The district does say that it has "open choice" - you can supposedly live in any area of the district but apply for your child to go to any school. But, we are finding this only to be the case with a few schools. The better schools are so full that they very rarely accept transfer students. Several high schools simply don't. So you'll want to make sure you live in whatever neighborhood the school of your choice is in just in case. That is, if you plan on doing public school. Oregon also has two tuition free online public homeschool options as well.
