The Clarksville community and the Parks and Recreation Department marked the opening of the Robert Clark Park and Blueway access point on Saturday morning with an official ribbon cutting and celebratory float down the West Fork Red River.

Many members of the Clarksville community came to the ribbon cutting to see the official opening of Robert Clark Park Natural Area and to experience the park’s Blueway access point on Tiny Town Road.

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan spoke at the ribbon cutting and then was the first person to hop in a canoe and float down the West Fork Red River a couple of miles to Billy Dunlop Park.

Mayor McMillan was the first paddler down the river, but dozens of other members of the Clarksville community soon followed and paddled the beautiful 2.5 mile float.
