Eugene Parks Up the Fun Factor: Food Trucks Roll into Town This Summer!

Get ready for a tastier time at Eugene's parks this summer! The city's Parks and Open Space department is expanding their existing food truck program, bringing a delicious and convenient option to some of your favorite green spaces.

Elissa Gavette, a representative from Eugene Parks and Open Space, explains the exciting initiative. "We're thrilled to be bringing food trucks to more parks across the city," she says. This expansion goes beyond just adding a new option for hungry park-goers.

Fresh Flavors, Familiar Faces:

The program aims to revitalize park experiences for the community. Imagine a day at Striker Field, complete with a post-game bite from your favorite food truck. Or picture enjoying a picnic lunch at Skinner Butte RiverPlay, followed by some sweet treats from a nearby vendor. These are the kind of scenarios the city hopes to create.

"We believe food trucks are a natural way to elevate the park experience," Gavette says. They not only provide delicious and diverse food options, but also create a vibrant atmosphere that encourages people to gather and connect.

Supporting Local Businesses:

The program extends a helping hand to local businesses, particularly those just starting out. Food truck permits are available at a range of costs ($30-$200) depending on the number of operating days per week. This allows aspiring food entrepreneurs to test the waters and reach a wider audience without a hefty investment.

How to Get Involved:

Calling all food truck vendors! If you're interested in joining this exciting program, Eugene Parks and Open Space wants to hear from you. Submit an interest form outlining your menu, pricing, and operational details. The city is happy to work with vendors and accommodate requests for specific park locations.

So, dust off your food truck and get ready to dish up deliciousness at Eugene's most popular parks! It's a win-win for everyone – tastier park experiences, support for local businesses, and a more vibrant community atmosphere.
