Get to Know Amazon

The quiet neighborhood of Amazon is located just __ blocks south of the University of Oregon campus. Amazon is contained within 24th Street and 30thStreet and within the cross streets of Agate Street and Amazon Park. This area of Eugene is mainly residential, but contains several popular local places including Sundance Natural Foods, The Humble Beagle Pub, and Amazon Community Center, which is located in Amazon Park.

While we intended to explore the neighborhood on foot, the Eugene weather had other plans for us. Trying our best to stay dry, we drove around the borders and side streets, which allowed us to see parts of Eugene that we never knew existed. The closer we drove to 30th Avenue, the more elaborate the homes became. Each block had a different personality displayed through the Easter basket assortment of colored houses and creativity in landscaping.

Even though it is a quiet neighborhood, Amazon has character that can even be seen from a water-soaked car window. We saw it!

 

The Agate St Video & Market is located on 24th and Agate Street. Oddly, it only accepts cash. How has it managed to stay in business?!

 

On the corner of 24th and Amazon Park. This is close to the running trails that many Eugene residents take advantage of. Plus, there's countless trees and a nice view of the hills!

 

This view is from 29th and Agate. It is in the more residential area of Amazon and overlooks the golf course.

 

This personality-packed house is located just one block West of the Agate St Video & Market. The moment we drove by this house, we knew we had to share it with everyone. This perfectly captures the character and individuality of the Amazon neighborhood.

 

Located in Amazon Park right next to the Amazon Bus Station is the dog park. When its not pouring rain, the dog park is filled with Eugene pups. This is one of the great community places in Amazon Park.

 

 

About HeidiReeley

Hello everyone! I am a Senior at the University of Oregon majoring in Magazine Journalism and also working on a minor in French. I have never really been the person who had all of the answers, so it has taken me awhile to get to this place. Thankfully, I my love for reading every magazine I could and an interest in the visual appeal of magazines naturally led me to find my major. Also, I have been studying French since I was 14, and I recently studied abroad in Poitiers, France, so its about time to have something to show for it. At the UO, I work as a supervisor for the Annual Giving Program where we keep relations with donors and alumni of the university and raise money for academic funds. I'm also a designer for Ethos magazine, which will provide me with invaluable experience in the field of journalism that I hope to be a part of in the near future. Stay tuned for my next post on twitter: @heidireeley
