Churchill Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Eu-genius

More than just about any city in the world, there are at least 4 public skateparks in Eugene Or - hell yes! Churchill is one of the newer ones [built in 2001?] and is a bigger deal than the two parks that were built previously.

For some more options in Eugene, check out the OG humble birdbath at Amazon [not to be confused with a slightly bigger birdbath in San Francisco with the same name!]. Then you've got a more modern attempt at Cal Young that's not too bad. And, I hear you've got a brand new beast built by Dreamland somewhere in the city... the city of Eugene kicks ass!

Directions: Take the 5 freeway to Eugene, then exit onto the highway 105 west. 105 will eventually dead end, heading south. Countinue south to 11th St, and make a right [west]. Continue west on 11th, pass Conger and Tyinn, then make a left [south] on Bailey Hill. A couple blocks later, you should be at Bailey Hill and 18th... that should be it.
