Description: Clark Community Park has a little bit of everything for everyone. There are ball fields for summer fun as well as a small lake, stream and a fish ladder to aid the migration of spawning fish. Visitors can walk around and beyond the perimeter of the ball fields or hike the three trails that together make up a roughly 2-mile hike. One section of the red trail connects to the Great Cedars Conservation Area.

Natural Features: Crystal Lake sits just behind the ball fields. The trails cut through marsh, not far from the Cedar Swamp.

Things to Note: This is a bug-heavy hike in the summer, so make sure to apply some form of mosquito repellent.
