Why you'd want to live in Springfield
The Springfield neighborhoods are east of Eugene and Interstate 5, loosely bounded by the beautiful and wild McKenzie River to the north and large riverside parks along the Willamette River to the South. Comprised of eight distinct neighborhoods (Gateway, Glenwood, Mohawk, Downtown, Thurston, and the Washburne Historic District), Springfield integrates residential neighborhoods with a range of commercial enterprises. The Gateway Mall and surrounding businesses right off Interstate 5 provide convenient shopping with Big Box and chain stores. In the heart of Springfield and its historic district, a plethora of antique stores draw treasure seekers. The McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center and the Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend offer state-of-the art medical resources. Springfield also serves light industrial business.
