Emerging from the ashes of the ﬁre that destroyed the iconic Eugene Civic Stadium, the Civic Park oﬀers a new promise for the future. The project creates the ﬁrst permanent courts for Kidsports (the nonproﬁt after-school organization) along with a new civic stadium and ﬁelds for the community at large. The project works in harmony with the existing site topography to create an intimate and contained environment, designed speciﬁcally to facilitate sporting events and community gatherings. With its location next to Amazon Creek, the project has environmental targets as well. Through its construction, the Civic Park will work to restore the site’s original ecology as all stormwater will be directed with the site slope to a planted green space that will generate a major site feature. Across the board, Civic Park carries on the legacy of Civic Stadium by providing a space for the public to enjoy sports and recreation while also fostering economic development and improving access to gym and ﬁeld spaces for kids.
