  • I can't wait to go back to this park! I live 2 hours away but the next time I'm in Eau Claire I'll definitely be stopping here again. I only went to the playground but I know this park offers much more. The playground is large and has numerous, new and unique climbing structures. Handicap swings and other play equipment. My kids loved it!
  • Had a blast with my little dude. Only thing that could make it any better would be to fence in the toddler area a bit. Not that watching your child should be an issue. It would just be nice not to have to worry so much.
  • It is an excellent park with an excellent selection of things for your child and you to either do together or by yourselves only problem is the park was designed for children 4 to 11 years old so it's hard for new parents with younger children to find a good activity to do that's not dangerous for a 2 year old or 3 year old and the parents there don't seem to care that there kids are pushing and overall being mean to the younger kids but that's everywhere so 4 stars if it was for all ages 5 stars all day and don't forget to go for a walk excellent trails and a stream you can explore plus a base ball stadium right next to park you can also explore to an extent
  • A safe and fun playground for all ages and for all needs. The rubber ground is squishy for falls too. You shouldn't leave before saying hello to Babe and Paul too.
  • Went kayaking on Half Moon Lake at Carson Park. Hard to believe you are in the middle of Eau Claire. Very peaceful place to go if you just want to leisurely paddle around for a couple hours. I don't fish, but it seems to be a popular spot for it.
