EUGENE, OR – Walking around the Whiteaker neighborhood you see a bunch of interesting thinks this neighborhood is full of unique places and people. Our first stop was the brand new WJ Skatepark which is the biggest covered outdoor skatepark in the country and rumor has it that the legendary Tony Hawk is making an appearance in the coming weeks!(bet you wish you picked this neighborhood huh?)
We also made out way around the multiple restaurants and breweries in the neighborhood. Papa’s Soul Food Kitchen is a must for BBQ lovers, there are multiple restaurants located next to each other so if you want some pizza or sushi Witheaker’s got you covered.
Ninkasi Brewing Company and Hop Valley are also located in this neighborhood so if you’re looking for some food and brew this is your place. Be prepared to run into some interesting people while walking through this neighborhood. Whiteaker has its nice and bad parts so it does come off as a little ghetto, the people make it sketchy but overall I can’t tell that this is gonna be a fun/interesting neighborhood to cover!
