Bordered by the Willamette River to the South, and McKenzie River to the North, Ferry Street Bridge offers several dog parks, community gardens, and other amenities that make Eugene a unique place to live.
It is an area known to be somewhat more politically conservative than areas South of the River, with a unique and modern outdoor shopping experience at Oakway Center. Oakway is home to the City's annual tree lighting ceremony, and hosts a summer concert series along with other special events.
A lot of homes in the Ferry Street Bridge area were built in the 60s and 70s as one-level Ranch-style homes with large yards (up to .50 acre). As the City has grown, large yards have become rare, especially as single-family-zoning disappears in the years ahead due to a State of Oregon law designed to prepare housing for greater population density and more affordable housing options for all.
