Local Effort: Proposed swimming beach along the Eau Claire River at Boyd Park
March 6, 2017 – 8:54 pm | No Comment

In case you hadn’t seen this yet, from you neighbor Chris … “Plans are in the works to resurrect the ‘Bathing Beach’ along the Eau Claire river below Boyd Park. This beach existed from 1912-1936. There are very few records about the beach but we have this historic photo and know that much of the original location is still intact. Many of the details of this project are still in the beginning stages and we are sitting down with the Parks and Rec Department sometime next week to hopefully get the green light.

Please take the time to add your name to the support letter and share with as many friends and family that are residents of Eau Claire. I will keep everyone posted as this project moves forward. Thank you for your support!”
