The city of Eugene, located at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, was voted one of the most livable cities in the United States. Known for its natural environment, recreational opportunities, and significant arts & culture, the official city slogan is “A Great City for the Arts and Outdoors”. Several parks in the city, maintained as an urban forest, offer a pleasant natural surrounding, including an impressive rhododendron garden, the Owen Memorial Rose Garden, and arboretum on the University of Oregon campus. Numerous community fairs, arts festivals, and activities mean there is always something to do in Eugene.
