Hi:

Looking into relocating to Oregon and considering Eugene. I would like to know if it is very safe and also is there a lot to do for children (our son is 3 but I am talking about childrens play areas, museums, etc..)

Thanks,
Ron

I just drove around Eugene yesterday. Looks like a very nice clean area. Lots of families and nice places to live. Good college town. Lots of educated people. It's on my list also!

One of the big complaints about new subdivisions is the absence of green spaces and parks. You will find that most cities are expanding in a very child-hostile fashion. Just run up a city map and start looking for small neighborhood parks and playgrounds.

Avoid the area just west of the U of O campus. That's where all the whores and druggies do their business.

I lived in Eugene for 7 years while going to school...very friendly toward kids. Biggest problem with it being a "college" town is that the undesirable element seem to gravitate there to steal bikes, break into cars and the such. Same as any other college town. Laid back and liberal. Cross I-5 to the east and Springfield is more conservative...in my opinion though not as great a place as Eugene.
