New Eau Claire baseball park to open by next year?
This week (as seen on WEAU TV-13), the Eau Claire community Foundation announced that it would begin construction on a large project for Jeffers Park, located on Eau Claire’s northwest side. The Chippewa Valley Homebuilders Association has volunteered the contractor labor - to build a multi-field baseball/softball complex, complete with a pavilion, playground, and trails. Most of the money will be generated by donations and many of the youth sport leagues involved have been working diligently to raise their portion of $300,000. More announcements are supposed to be coming at an upcoming Parks and Recreation Dept. meeting. The park could open by the spring of 2015.
