A week after releasing new concept images for the forthcoming Haymarket Plaza, planners have produced a video to match. Downtown Eau Claire Inc. posted it to their Facebook page Friday, Feb. 24. Check it out ... 

Features shown include a large fountain, sculptures, multiple small “fire plazas,” access to the water, and plenty of natural seating. And of course, you’ll also see the much-talked-about pedestrian overlook bridge spanning the Eau Claire River, connecting the new plaza to Phoenix Park. 

In case you’ve forgotten, the Haymarket Plaza is a public park area to be located between the new Haymarket Landing building, the forthcoming Confluence Arts Center, and the confluence of the Eau Claire and Chippewa Rivers itself – right up to where the land meets the water.
