Just three miles from the heart of downtown Eau Claire and situated along the Eau Claire River, River Prairie Park is an up-and-comer gathering spot for outdoor music, creative cuisine and fun for the whole family (pets, too!). This park, located in Altoona, is home to three amphitheaters to host live music, tons of play space to entertain the kids, a splash pad and a stream to cool off in, walking and biking trails to explore and kayak access to get you out on the water. Not to mention, there’s a lot of open, grassy space where you can kick back and read in the sunshine or set up a pick-up game of Kubb. River Prairie Park is home to some of the Eau Claire area’s tastiest restaurants, including 44 North, The Island Parkside, Cabin Coffee, Helix, and Cowboy Jack’s, not to mention the pop-up food trucks that are the essence of all things tasty.
Summer concert series include Kick'n it Country which takes place every Monday throughout the summer and Rock'n on the River which takes place on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer. River Prairie is also home to a variety of other events including the annual River Prairie Festival and Ginormous Pumpin Festival.
