I have been using Google Earth and Zillow to get an idea of southern Eugene. I love the wooded areas. They seem to be in Southeast , Churchill and Fox Hollow from what I can tell. Can anyone tell me about these areas and is there a wooded area that is more flat to make bike riding easier but still have that nestled wooded feeling ? Wood you say those neighborhoods are all safe ?

Those neighborhoods are all safe. There are parts of Southeast that are less hilly, I think. I'm not sure about Churchill. Crest Drive and Fox Hollow are hilly. We bike on the hills...slowly. I'm still working on my endurance but lots of people zip right up them. I live in the hills, but I often bike in the Friendly neighborhood and around Amazon Park. It's flat and there's lots to see.

You should really come visit. Are you planning on renting or buying?

We were there a few months ago.. We made the mistake of just going downtown and felt a little to crowded so we ventured on in our search to find the right place to retire.. We were all set on Cottage Grove but then I started googling Southern Eugene and when I saw a lot of those houses with tons of trees front and back ( some looked like a treehouse LOL), I knew that was what we wanted.. ♥ I like how it seems to be that the Southern part feels like your miles away from a big city yet so close..
Common sense would say to rent first but we are coming with 2 dogs and 2 cats so finding a rental would be next to impossible. So we will buy..
We wont be able to buy tho till around June/July ( after we list our house in March)
Just want to be prepared so I can tell a realtor exactly what we want and general area.♥.

There are bike paths around the Fern Ridge Reservoir/lake area, maybe Veneta area. I've only been to Fern Ridge twice. It looked very nice area...

Check the schools, some neighborhoods in the SE do not get to go to South Eugene High which is ranked 10 but just out of the top 1000 (1018) high schools in the USA. Churchill High is ranked a 6. Makes a difference on resale to a family.

My husband said thanks for the brilliant idea. ♥
