High rollers skate rink

The High Roller skate rink is found at 3120 Melby St. It is a fun place to spend time with friends as well as get some exercise according to their website.

They have open skate times and theme nights. They play music from all generations and they take song requests.

Skates of all sizes are provided. Most of the circle is flat; however, there is also a raised area on one side.

Food, drinks and an arcade are all also available in the facility.

Tickets for skating and rentals typically range from $3-$6, according to their website.

Carson Park

Carson Park is located at 100 Carson Park Dr. It is a 134-acre peninsula surrounded by Halfmoon Lake.

This is a great place to watch or play sports from baseball and softball to tennis, football and everything in between. UW-Eau Claire Blugold football games are also currently being played here.

Not only are there sports, but there is a lot of green space as well. You can go for walks, play outdoor games or have a picnic.

Eau Claire Farmers Market

The Farmers Market is found on 300 Riverfront Terrace. This is a place to find local foods and products from Eau Claire.
