Summer is blooming at Clark Lake and this is especially noticeable right now in some of our public areas.  As anyone who has tried his or her hand at gardening knows, great looking results don’t happen without a lot of hard work.  Fortunately Clark Lake has gardeners who are both willing to make the effort and are talented at what they do.

The Clark Lake Garden Angels work their magic around the Clark Lake Community Center and the triangle at the corner of North Lake and Ocean Beach Roads.  Garden Angels include Karen Bullinger, Shelly Wilbur, Sandy Simons and Ann Swain.

The garden at the corner of Hyde Road and North Lake is created and maintained by Dr. Lynn VanWagnen and family.

The Clark Lake Spirit Trail committee maintains the gardens in the Columbia Township Park and the two gardens in the County Park.  People like Dan Omo, Pat Dwyer, Sheri Bush, Kristi Allen, Ann Swain, Peggy Collins, Sally Lyons, Tucker Boyers, John Karkheck, and Don Fowler pitch in to make it happen.
