Park
“Across the bridge from Eau Claire Market, you will find Princess Island Park, which is a great destination during mild and warm weather. You'll find street performers (weekends), ducks looking for handouts, and a great bike path system. Rent some bikes or scooters, and have a great time in this oasis in the city.”
