Third Ward Neighborhood - Eau Claire

The City of Eau Claire

Third Ward Neighborhood

The Third Ward is a great place to live for three main reasons: Convenience, Community, and History. In the Third Ward, you know your neighbors and they know you. Building community is a way of life here, whether borrowing eggs for a recipe, shoveling an elderly neighbor's sidewalk after a snowstorm, or participating in one of the many block parties and neighborhood gatherings.

Yard of the Month Contest

Residents may now nominate either a neighbor's yard or their own yard for 'Yard of the Month'. Click here to learn more!


The Third Ward is conveniently located. Situated within walking distance of UW-Eau Claire, downtown, and the Water Street area, many Third Warders utilize alternative transportation, such as biking, to get around.


The Third Ward is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Eau Claire and both its architecture and layout reflect this. The Third Ward has a large number of beautiful homes, built before the days of kit houses and cookie-cutter mansions. Walking through you can feel the history which helps promotes a sense of neighborhood pride
