I live in a lock gate community mobile park . Their are several of these in Eugene and it is most desirable place for people who want to retire here. They offer a variety of amenities for senior people

The cost for rent is completely out of range for a person on a fixed income. Unless of course your income is well over 3500.00 a month.

Age discrimination is huge here. If you're over 50 forget about getting a decent job. The youth culture with the local university is prevalent in this town.
