EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEAU) – Construction continues in Eau Claire’s Cannery District for a new park near the Brewing Projekt. Along the river, the park is meant to keep a natural feel while still having unique features. Steve Plaza, the Eau Claire Parks, Forestry and Cemetery Manager says there will be traditional playground equipment but the park will also have ties to Cannery Park’s past, “Back in the turn of the century, this was the Cannery District, and a lot of our features paid tribute to the Cannery District, like our buildings, our metal tin roof, like they did in the Cannery District. Even our bike racks are circular. That looks like the top of a of a can.”

Plaza says the park is on schedule and a grand opening is expected to be held in June 2024
