Neighborhood Fundraiser for Boyd Park Bathroom Upgrades!

On Tuesday, February 23 from 5pm–9pm, join your neighbors for an evening of family fun at Action City (2402 Lorch Ave, Eau Claire). The night will be a fundraiser for Boyd park bathroom project (learn more about it here: eastsidehill.com/archives/3993). Boyd Park gets 25 percent of Action City’s sales that – just be sure to let them know you are with the Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association at time of purchase (or we will not get credit for your sale).

The Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association is raising funds to allow for the Boyd Park bathrooms to be open during normal park hours. We have the goal of raising $4,025 by the end of March to ensure the work will be done and the bathrooms open by the beginning of summer. This money will pay for upgrades to install electronic locks, wiring upgrades, security cameras and internet connections that will make Boyd Park a free Wifi hotspot for all park users. (The Eau Claire Office of Community Development will contribute half of the total $8,050 cost of this upgrade through their Neighborhood Matching Fund Program.)

The neighborhood association is excited about this project and having these bathrooms available for use not only for people who live in the neighborhood but for those who use the park because of its proximity to the bike trail.
