What Bert Has To Say About Eugene Metro Area

Eugene and Springfield sit across from one another on the Willamette River. Home to the University of Oregon, the area has a large timber industry and is a transportation hub for routes south into California. The setting is attractive, and clean and prosperous downtown Eugene has the kind of shops and restaurants one would expect in a college town. The park system is excellent, most particularly a waterfront park along the river. Good growth management has minimized sprawl effects but there is a new and modern mall along I-5 northeast of town.
