College Hill is comprised of everything between Willamette Street and Friendly Street between 18th and 29th. The neighborhood consists of mainly single family homes in a quiet setting. Many of the homes have beautiful views overlooking Eugene.

Downtown is basically anything within a 15 minute walk of Broadway Plaza. Downtown boasts many local eateries, art galleries, shops, the city library, theaters, clubs and businesses.
The Fairmount Neighborhood owes its name and many of its unique characteristics to a short-lived 19th-century development known as Fairmount City. Annexed into the city of Eugene in 1902, this development's legacy is preserved in generously-sized residential lots, the curvilinear design of Fairmount Boulevard, and a large neighborhood park- part of which was later incorporated into Hendricks Park. The Fairmount Neighborhood has since ascended into the forested hills to the south and east, and is now contiguous with adjacent Eugene neighborhoods. Many residents enjoy the easy walking distance to several commercial districts featuring conveniences such as restaurants, groceries, bakeries, pet care, auto repair, and more. Fairmount is also just East of the University of Oregon Campus.
Ferry Street Bridge
Ferry Street Bridge is located just North of the river from Downtown Eugene. Located in this area are the Willamette River, restaurants, parks, shopping centers, spas, 2 golf courses and easy access to 1-5. Bike paths and bridges make biking super fun and easy! The Ferry Street Bridge Neighborhood is in the area bounded by Interstate 5 on the east; the Willamette River on the south and west and Randy Pape Beltline on the North.
The Friendly Area Neighborhood is named for Friendly Street, that bisects the neighborhood from North to South. The street was named for Sam Friendly, a much-loved 19th century mayor of Eugene, and one of the far-sighted individuals who secured the location of the University of Oregon for Eugene. His direct descendant was Fred Friendly, the internationally renowned broadcast journalist. This neighborhood encompasses a wide range of architectural and personal styles. Residents of the Friendly Area Neighborhood love to garden and this common thread of love and pride is visible on every street. The street trees that flourish were planted, in part, through the efforts of the Friendly Area Neighbors Association (FAN).
The Gilham neighborhood contains many amenities including major shopping centers, several grocery stores, parks, fire station, police station and a golf course. The vast majority of land supports low density residential uses. Major commercial uses are located along Coburg Road.

Laid back, entertaining and fun. People who live and work in, what they call "The Whiteaker" or "The Whit", describe it as a colorful, bohemian, artsy, interesting place to be: The alternative part of town. In the span of a few blocks there are a rainbow mural on the Glass Menagerie (glass pipe store), saltwater-taffy-colored bungalows in the East Blair Housing Cooperative, Red Barn Natural Grocery, and the blue and gold domes of St. John the Wonderworker Serbian Orthodox Church. Local breweries of Ninkasi, Hop Valley and Oakshire call this neighborhood “home”. Eugene's oldest neighborhood is spread out around an area north and south of the railroad tracks a few blocks from the Willamette River. The neighborhood has a distinctive core business area that stretches along Blair Boulevard and surrounding streets, roughly between Third and Seventh Avenues.
