Best Public Park

Home to two museums, the Eau Claire Express, a miniature train, and so much more, you could spend a whole weekend at Carson Park (199 Carson Park Drive, Eau Claire) and not run out of things to do. Irvine Park (125 Bridgewater Ave., Chippewa Falls) is also an easy favorite. It has a zoo, ski and hiking trails, places to picnic, playgrounds, and even a Christmas Village when the season’s right. Plus, it’s free! Home to farmers markets and concert series, splash pads and swing sets, River Prairie Park (1419 Front Porch Place, Altoona) is truly for everyone – even your pets. – Danielle Zinsli
