Map & Directions

Explore nearly 7 miles of trails on Green Island, located where the McKenzie River meets the Willamette. Points of interest throughout the Island will tell the story of this special place where wildflowers bloom, salmon hide, turtles bask, and volunteers plant trees, restoring the floodplain forest.

Green Island is located just 15 minutes from downtown Eugene or Springfield – click here for directions. Parking is limited. Please CARPOOL if possible.

No dogs, please!

We like dogs as much as you, but there are no dogs allowed on Green Island. Please leave your furry friends at home so they don’t have to wait in the car.
