Where do I begin? Carson Park has something of interest to everyone from the historic baseball stadium, where Hank Aaron began his legendary baseball career with the Eau Claire Bears, to the Logging Museum, the Chippewa Valley Museum, the mini train ride, the playground and picnic grounds and finally the walking/ driving/ biking path which surrounds the park. Carson Park is surrounded by Half Moon Lake. One of the two lower sections, Braun's Bay, is great for birdwatching, fishing and to launch boats-either non-motorized or those with motors. The second lower section has a picnic area and small playground. The upper portion of Carson Park has the baseball stadium, a football stadium, tennis courts, museums, a large, updated playground, many picnic areas and pavilions, roads and trails to walk. Carson Park is home to the Eau Claire Express and the Eau Claire Cavaliers baseball team and the Eau Claire Crush football team. There are various events held at Carson Park throughout the year such as the international chainsaw competition where chainsaw artists sculpture their creations which are later auctioned to the public. I live in Eau Claire and love going to Carson Park, either by myself or with my family and friends.
