Fitness classes could be coming soon to Eugene parks


EUGENE, Ore. – People looking for opportunities to work out safely will soon have a new option.

Eugene’s Parks and Open Space will be adapting the low-cost park rental program to make it easier for local businesses to hold health and fitness activities outside.

Businesses that are approved can reserve space for up to two hours per day five days a week for $40 a month. The $150 deposit has been temporarily waived.

Classes most follow public health guidelines. Contact sports are not allowed and participants must wear masks if they can’t keep six feet of distance from others. Shared equipment use is discouraged.

A rental permit is required, and processing could take up to 14 days depending on demand. Security deposits will be waived through at least Oct. 15, and the program will continue to be evaluated.
