The next Tugman Park maintenance day is scheduled for Saturday, January 16, from 9 AM-12 PM. Tools and gloves are provided by Parks & Open Space. It’s always a good time and it’s a great way to get exercise and give back to the community.
Tugman Park is one of Eugene’s largest neighborhood parks. It is a beloved park for neighborhood kids who love playing in the sand and on the play structures or visiting the natural area in the northwest corner of the park. An adult kickball league and kid’s soccer are enjoyed by many. Southeast Neighbors has held it’s annual summer picnic at Tugman for many years and officially adopted the park in 2013.
Volunteers help with landscape bed maintenance, cleaning play structures, painting over graffiti, play sand maintenance and removal of non-native species along the Tugman creek corridor to benefit native species. For details or to volunteer to help out on a different date or time, please contact EPS-South Region Volunteer Coordinator Carrie Karl at 541.682.4850
