Just in case you are still searching for a conveniently located, easy care home with a fenced yardin the Eugene area... I'll suggest the Island Lakes Condominiums which offer easy to use bus service and a quick connection to the bike paths along the Willamette River. The condos are just a few minutes from Valley River Centery shopping, theatres, restaurants, community centers, churches, many doctors, grocery and pet supply stores, etc. The bike paths lead you through beautiful scenery to most anywhere around town and out toward the countryside. These condos have modest association dues which afford you the benefit of exterior home maintenance and a nice club house boasting a nice gathering room, large kitchen and outdoor pool. The buildings are in good condition and attractively place amid landscaped grounds with water features and mature plantings. Instead of a private fenced yard the come with enclosed patio space. Small pets are allowed in these condos and it seems that many residents find the enclosed patio is an ideal alternative to a fenced in yard.
