Carson Park Hank Aaron Plaza Brochure
The Eau Claire Baseball History Committee, an informal group of baseball enthusiasts, organized in 2003 to save historical local baseball memorabilia, has developed a plan to recognize contributors to the city’s rich baseball tradition. Additions are made to the plaza around the Hank Aaron statue, at the Carson Park Baseball Stadium, to recognize three groups of people in a “Hall of Fame” manner. The first group in the Hall of Fame are, “Individuals or groups of people who made significant contributions to Eau Claire baseball.” The second group of people are “Individuals who played on Eau Claire teams, as regular season roster players, and made it to a Major League Baseball roster as a player or bench coach.” The third group to be recognized is Eau Claire natives who played for minor league pro baseball teams.

During the past several years the City has experienced problems with skateboarders at several public park areas including Phoenix Park and the Hank Aaron Plaza in Carson Park. The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department encourages people to skateboard, roller blade and trick bike, but in safe and appropriate places. The department installed a 3,000 square foot facility at Lakeshore Park in August of 2013.
Living Legacy Program
Living Legacy Planting Program Application Form
For a donation of $300 the city will plant a tree in memory of, honor of, or to celebrate a moment in life (birth, anniversary, marriage etc). The donor(s) will be notified prior to the planting. A certificate will be given to the donor(s) recognizing their donation and their honoree.
In order to achieve the best survival rate and establishment, legacy trees to be planted in city cemeteries and parks must meet specifications and recommendations set forth by the Forestry Division of the Eau Claire Parks and Recreation Department.
The Forestry Division will aid in the selection of species and planting location (Phoenix Park is currently full). Legacy planting will meet the specifications of a grade 1 shade tree and be 2" caliber, balled and burlapped stock. The tree will be planted in either April or October, depending on species.
Plaques, markers or tags will not be placed at the tree but location maps and
photos can be provided as the city computerized tree inventory program is
developed. A certificate suitable for framing will be included.
Park Bench Program
Benches can be purchased for a donation of $2,060 and are a great way to honor a birth, anniversary or celebrate the memory of a loved one. Benches can be placed within city parks or along the city trail system. However, no more space is available at Phoenix Park.
Plaques can be purchased by the donors through Awards and More in Eau Claire. They may be mounted by the donor or the Parks Division can mount the plaque.
If you interested in placing a bench, please contact our Parks Division (John Lofgren or Steve Roscoe) at 715-839-5039. After a location is agreed upon, you will fill out the form and submit payment on site.
