Built 1938

Civic Stadium is a ballpark located in Eugene, Oregon. It was built in 1938 and has a capacity of 5,000 people. It was the home stadium of the Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League through 2009. It featured one of the few remaining wooden grandstands in the United States and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The ballpark burned down completely in a spectacular blaze on June 29, 2015. Vacant since the Emeralds' departure, it had recently been purchased by a local non-profit group wanting to turn it into a soccer field and park for children's sports.
