Historic Hayward field where track history has been made. Recently completely rebuilt.
United States Olympic Trials Are Friday June 19th to Sunday June 28th at Hayward Field.
The greatest track field in America is right here in your backyard. with some the great greatest runners in the world stepping foot here every year. a must see! home of Steve Prefontaine.
“A beautiful park that features a rhodedendron garden with beautiful views of the city. ”
“Steve Prefontaine passed away right here. Go to "Pre's Rock" and pay tribute. Take your ribbon, medal or even the shoes you wore and leave a little a tribute. I grew up admiring him, still have my autographed picture. ”
“If you are a college football fan, this is the place to be. Even if not football season, you can check out the area and its a cool building. If during football season and you are going to a game, I would highly recommend riding bikes over or take an uber/lyft to Oakway Center and then walk because traffic can get bad.”
“Pre's Trail isn't so much a point of interest but a great jog. It is his path that he used to run when he was going to the UofO. Not that difficult, just a great run with beautiful views. ”
