Event details
Join PP&R staff from 1-3 pm on June 4th to discover the healing benefits the Eagle Point Nature Patch offers for the VA community members and neighbors! Located off Terwilliger Blvd, south of the VA Hospital Road, this can be stopped along your Terwilliger Parkway walk or a destination for a peaceful place to enjoy nature. 

Due to the proximity of Eagle Point to the Veterans Health Administration Hospital and Oregon Health Sciences University on Terwilliger, the space is imagined as a place where nature and human health can intentionally intersect.

PP&R is hosting an invitational tour to local hospitals and community members on June 4th to introduce the space to the community so that staff, families, and patients can enjoy the healing benefits of nature. 

Light refreshments will be provided. Parking can be found along SW Terwilliger Blvd and SW Hamilton Terrace. Unfortunately, this location is not ADA Accessible. 

Here's how to get there:
