Coming soon: more accessible parking lots and an outdoor science park!

UO Athletics is constructing a new indoor practice field next to Autzen Stadium and will be relocating their two outdoor practice fields south of their current location. To accommodate this, Leo Harris Parkway will be re-routed to the south and the existing City-owned paved parking lot serving Eugene Science Center, Cuthbert Amphitheater, and Alton Baker Park guests will be relocated to two new parking lots east and north of Eugene Science Center. The lot south of the science center will accommodate staff. 

Visit THIS PAGE for information about UO Football Tailgating at the science center.
