SEPTEMBER 18, 2020

Because the Ducks’ 2020 games will not be played with fans in attendance, we will not be hosting football tailgate parking this fall.

For those who already purchased season passes for 2020:

THANK YOU for your continued support. The funds you have given this year are helping us weather the extended closure of the museum.  

Your 2020 season pass payment will automatically be applied to the postponed 2020 or 2021 season. You do not need to do anything in order to carry your payment forward as a credit. We will keep you updated on plans for future games as we learn of them, and you will have priority for those games should parking capacity be limited. If you have not already received one, at year end you will be sent the regular confirmation & receipt for your pass purchase indicating the payment total and amount of goods and services. 

If you would like to donate the full amount of your payment to Eugene Science Center to help us through this difficult time: THANK YOU! Please fill out this short form to ensure you receive a receipt for your charitable contribution.

If you are not able to donate your full payment but want to support us, carrying your payment forward is the best way you can help us through this challenging year. 

For additional information or if you have questions, please reach out by phone at 541-682-7896, or email me at [email protected]

We truly appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we wish you good health and good spirits. 


Your parking pass purchase supports the Eugene Science Center’s educational programs as well as other community organizations including the Eugene Elks Lodge #357, ATA Team Pride in Cottage Grove, the Eugene Active 20-30 Club and the City of Eugene Department of Parks and Open Space.

Rules & Information

Eugene Science Center works closely with: the City of Eugene Police, Fire, and Parks Departments; Oregon Liquor Control Commission; the University of Oregon Athletic and Police Departments; Lane Transit District; and other agencies to ensure safety, compliance with laws and regulations, and to provide the best parking program available.  All parking guests are required to observe the rules and conditions for parking in Eugene Science Center-managed lots. Read the 2019 rules here.

PLEASE NOTE: All Eugene city parks are smoke-free.


A season is defined as all regular season home games of the University of Oregon football team played at Autzen Stadium. The Spring Game is not considered part of the regular season.

Your parking pass will be sent in the mail. Protect your pass – it is the only way you will be allowed into the lots on game day. Replacement passes will incur a $50 replacement fee.

Rates remain unchanged for 2020.
