EUGENE, Ore- Upon walking and driving around the Jefferson Westside Neighbors area, it was very easy to see how much of a community the neighborhood is. In just a few blocks, I saw many churches, schools and day cares.
As I walked down Polk Street, I saw an uncountable amount of school buses, demonstrating how many schools are in the area. This made me think that this part of Eugene must be very family oriented with a lot of children, quite a bit different from the area near the university.
Jefferson Westside Neighbors is home to the Lane Events Center. The center offers a large field area and an ice arena. The Rink Exchange has many programs for families in the area, including hockey and figure skating. This is a great addition to the community and is a testament to the neighborhood’s appeal to families.
Jefferson Westside Neighbors has a lot of appeal. With many community gathering places and homes full of character, it is clear to see why families choose to settle down here.
