Welcome to the Clark

County Park District!

As our mission, the Clark County Park District seeks to preserve the natural beauty of our parks, as well as our history through active stewardship efforts from our local Springfield community and beyond.

Kids’ Fishing Derby, 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
Shelter Dedication, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM
Saturday May 19
George Rogers Clark Park, at Hosterman Lake

Get outside and fish with us! Fishermen and women of all ages can enjoy this opportunity so bring the family. Please bring your own fishing pole, bait, and any other fishing equipment needed. Rangers will be on hand to assist and prizes will be awarded at the end of the Derby.

When the fishing derby concludes at noon, join us across the park road for a dedication ceremony to rename two of our shelters. The Campbell Shelter (A-frame at the Lake) and the Braman Shelter (A-frame at the Circle) will be dedicated that day, honoring Jim Campbell, retired Clark County Park District executive director, and Bess & Jim Braman who lived in the Hertzler House and cared for the park for many years. Light snacks will be available.


The Clark County Park District invites you to visit and enjoy all of our area parks, preserves, historical museums, and multi-use trails.
