History

Eugene's earliest residents were the Calapooya tribe of Native Americans. Agriculture, milling and transportation were the main industries, with steady steamship trade between Eugene and Portland. Lumbering became the most important industry during the late 19th century, with saw mills and shingle mills predominating the landscape. The University of Oregon was founded in 1872, opening the age of Eugene as a cultural center. The area has maintained a liveable feel despite industrialization, remaining a well kept and even park-like city due to extensive trees and landscaping. Today, Eugene is known for high-tech industries, education, and the wine industry among others. Museums in the Harlow area include the Science Factory Children's museum, the Museum of Natural History and Culture and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art across the river. The Annual Art and the Vineyard event draws thousands of art and wine lovers to Alton Baker Park for tastings and art displays.

Transportation

Harlow is centrally located and offers bike routes and walking paths as well as easily-accessed highways and thruways. Biking is very safe here and popular. Public transit presents another great option on Lane Transit District buses, taking Harlow residents to downtown and other Eugene and Springfield neighborhoods. Hailing a cab can be difficult here, but plenty of local companies provide service via telephone. Uber can be used as well within the Eugene and Springfield region. Public parking remains generally easy to find, however during Oregon Ducks games and Alton Park events, the southern region of the neighborhood can be difficult to access and especially hard to find parking.

The average rent for a one-bedroom residence stands at $775. The typical price of a beer at a local pub is $3-5, and less for options like PBR cans and equivalents. Gas prices remain around 11 percent higher in Harlow compared with the national average.

Parks

Harlow contains one of the best parks in Lane County, Alton Baker Park. The area is comprised of two sections, the more developed West Alton Baker Park, containing the Autzen Stadium, Science Factory Children's Museum and the Cuthbert Amphitheater. The eastern portion of Alton Baker consists of the 237-acre Whilamut Natural Area, with trails, interpretive signs and easy access to a peaceful natural environment. Alton Baker Park has so much to offer, including an off-leash area for dogs, a BMX track, boat launch, exercise stations and several sports courts and fields. Pre's Trail covers a 4-mile long walking and running trail popular with training athletes and weekend warriors alike which winds through both sections of Alton Baker. Whilamut Natural Area feels like a world away from the city, proving respite from the rush and bustle of Eugene. Alton Baker remains free of charge and appeals to kids and adults of all ages. Non-profit Nearby Nature leads educational camps and workshops at the park as well.
