Four city parks provide
enjoyment and fun for area residents and visitors. Clark has been a
U.S.A. for 24 years, and each year the community's appreciation for the
town's beautiful trees is shown with new planting, prunings, and events
that celebrate the trees.
Park provides a scenic stopover
along Highway 212 and honors war veterans for service during war times.
The railroad tracks ran through this park in the early years of Clark.
A tree was planted during the Clark Centennial in 1981 and has a
commemorative stone marker. A time capsule was also buried at the
park during the Centennial Celebration. The
history of the Flat Iron
Soldier Memorial is quite interesting, as it was built to honor
World War I Veterans, and an additional memorial was built to honor
later veterans of World War II and the Korean War, and Vietnam War.
Dickinson Park features camper and electrical hookups and one of the
best baseball diamonds in the state. For more information, contact the
City of Clark or check their website at
www.cityofclark.com . Picnic shelters, playground
equipment, and horseshoe pits are featured alongside the
baseball diamond, and high school football
games are played there in the fall. The baseball park has been
completely renovated by the Clark Rotary Club. The improvements include
new lights, dugouts, chain link fences, press box, grandstand, sodding
and an underground sprinkler system. A new concession stand and
bathrooms were added recently. Dickinson Park is located 1 block north
of Highway 212 on Cloud Street.
Swimming Pool Park complex features a heated swimming pool, outdoor
basketball courts, volleyball courts, playground equipment, and picnic
shelters. It is an excellent place for group picnics and get-togethers.
Clark's swimming pool was originally built with
volunteer labor in the 1950's, spearheaded by the Clark Rotary Club.
The pool is open afternoons and evenings. Swimming lessons are given
each summer. A butterfly garden at the park is in the planning stages.
In 2006 the
Clark Rotary Club planted 30 trees at the
Clark Swimming Pool Park, and helped to water and take care of them
through the summer and get them ready for winter. This was part of
the Rotary Tree Project for the city
city softball complex features two regulation-size tennis courts with a
backboard constructed by the Clark FFA, and an excellent ball diamond
which is used for softball and Little League Baseball. An excellent
Youth Summer Recreation Program is held for children ages 5-14. T-ball,
and various other activities are offered. The softball complex is
located 1 block north of Highway 212 on Clinton Street, next to the
Clark Junior/Senior High School.
