Mount Simon Park

Mount Simon Park, Eau Claire, WILocated on Dells Pond, you can access this 49-acre park from Madison Street or Birch Street. Mount Simon Park has a boat landing and dock, two pavilions, two lighted sand volleyball courts and a Frisbee nine-hole golf course. Two courses, one in town at Mount Simon City Park, the other just a few miles east of Eau Claire at the Tower Ridge Recreation Area. This is a short course. It makes for a good warm-up though.
