Carson Park Entrance at Grand Avenue Now Open
Posted: August 21, 2017
The City of Eau Claire opened the reconstructed Grand Avenue entrance to Carson Park on November 17. The completed bridge, which spans Half Moon Lake, is much wider than the previous bridge and causeway and can accommodate 12' sidepaths and bike lanes. It also stands a few feet higher above the water, and has a twenty foot longer span (see image, looking north). The $2.9 million project includes overlooks, more space for fishing, benches, and by 2018, a variety of trees plantings.
