Scobert Gardens, Whiteaker, Eugene

Snuggled in between a cozy neighborhood and a few of the popular restaurants on Blair Street is the small Scobert Gardens of Whiteaker.

Down the street from Eugene’s favorite Southern comfort food cuisine, Papa’s Soul Food, Scobert Gardens’s open space and green grasses welcome kids, adults, and pets alike. Countless hours of volunteer work and under $30,000 of Community Development Block Grant¬†funds went towards the construction of Scobert Gardens Park in 1983. This park features botanical gardens, climbers, fixed benches, lighting, and a play structure. Scobert Gardens is Eugene’s first playground with an entirely rubberized safety surface to cushion the falls of the neighborhood children. This park is both cost-effective and low-maintenance in it’s structure and uses materials that are safer than what is found in most other playgrounds.

If you’re ever in need of a grassy knoll for a midday picnic or want to bask in the sunshine while reading your favorite novel, Scobert Gardens has the sights and means for a perfect afternoon in the park.
