I currently have been living in Eugene for the past 11 months. I have been to parts of Springfield for appointments or just driving around, but still don't know much about it. Locals who have lived here for a long time, have told me that Springfield is bad. I want to move out of my apartment in West Eugene, and the property management company that approved my application, has buildings in Springfield that are within my budget, but I don't know what specific area I should stay away from, if I do move to Springfield. I am a single female so safety is very important to me. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

IMO...Springfield is no worse than any other city. It has neighborhoods that are good and some that are bad, just like everywhere else. It's been years since I've lived in Springfield, but I do visit a few times a year since I have family that still lives there.

The older areas such as 17th st, D st, and areas by Maple Elementary are part of the old Springfield, and people have let the area go. I'd say that area is now probably a bit rough.

The Hayden Bridge/Game Farm area and the areas by Thurston High going toward Walterville are all building up with newer homes and are more desirable at this point. Only because of the new builds.

You should be able to call the SPD and they can tell you where the higher crime areas are.

Hope this helps a little.
