Eugene’s Dynamic Cal Young Neighborhood

by Evan Sernoffsky

The Cal Young neighborhood, also called Sheldon, extends from Springfield to Delta Highway and from the Willamette River past the Belt Line Highway in Eugene.  It is one of Eugene’s largest and most diverse regions. Much of the area has palatial houses with well-groomed yards, but other parts represent much lower income housing areas. It has plenty of room for development, and much of Eugene’s expansion is focused to the north of the Willamette River. The Valley River Center on the west end of Sheldon is one of the area’s largest destinations for shopping.

The Ferry Street Bridge is the Gateway from Downtown Eugene into Sheldon.

The new bike bridge that traverses Interstate 5 from Eugene to Springfield marks Cal Young's eastern boundary.

The Delta Pond preserve is less than a mile from the Valley River Center.

Crescent Village lies on the north end of Eugene between Game Farm and Coburg road. The master plan for this development has yet to be fully realized.

Alton Baker Park is a place for visitors to enjoy summer in Eugene.
