AMAZON AT A GLANCE
Living in Amazon
The Amazon Neighborhood is nestled at, around and below where the Amazon headwaters pour from southern hills before they cross Eugene into the Willamette River. The Ridgeline trail passes through the upper reaches of this neighborhood as it takes hikers and bikers east and west across the ridge-line of hills forming a natural border along Eugene’s southern flank. Tall firs line the hillsides, and at one point the trail crosses a 40-foot span of one of the headwaters of Amazon Creek.
Then, a bark path known as the Amazon trail system flows north and south along East and West Amazon Streets, joining bike paths off Hilyard St, and gives thousands of southern Eugeneans healthy access to Roosevelt Middle School, South Eugene High School, all of downtown and campus and every point in-between. Along the way you’ll pass the Amazon Pool and the Amazon Community Center, a dog-park, many nice restaurants, and through much of it the Amazon Creek slowly flows.
I have helped many, many individuals in their search for a temporary or dream-home in the Amazon Neighborhood. Folks who want quick access to I-5 by climbing 30th Ave., in addition to outdoorsy individuals and families choosing their homes to be near forrest, trails and nature, all in the South Eugene school district.
Undeniably, the Amazon Neighborhood should be a stop on any Eugene tour of homes, be the sought-after price point resting in the 200s or closer to a million. This neighborhood has something for everyone.
