|About Our Facilities
Harstad Park overlooks the Eau Claire River, giving this 43 acre park many scenic views. This park is for those who enjoy the quietness of nature, with no electricity or running water. The park offers facilities to accommodate the family or large group gatherings including a large reservable open shelter and ball field. Because of its access to the Eau Claire River, fishing and canoeing are favorite pastimes for many park visitors.
