O.R.C. (Outlet Recreation Complex)
Clear Lake is excited about its new Recreation Area. The area can be accessed by either 12th Ave S (south side of the complex) or S. 17th St (north side of the complex). The O.R.C. will be continually seeing improvements to the park. A 9-hole disc golf course opened in 2016. The recreation trail is complete and open to use and the Dog Park opened mid June 2016. The area sports several youth soccer and football fields.
DOG PARK FUNDRAISING
Currently, the Parks and Recreation Department is in the continual process of fundraising for the Dog Park on the East side of the complex. The Dog Park included a designated and separated area for both large and small dogs. Dog park donations can be made payable to "Friends of the Outlet Recreation Complex" and mailed to Clear Lake Parks & Recreation Department, c/o Chyrl Bergvig, 800-1st Ave S, Clear Lake, IA 50428.
OTHER IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Work will be ongoing to improve the turf/athletic field areas of the park. Improvements such as shelters for picnics, playground equipment, benches, landscaping, tree planting, etc. are excellent opportunities for any community member or organization to make a lasting contribution to the community (Eagle Scout or civic group projects). If you are interested in helping make these plans a reality by fundraising or volunteering, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 641-357-7010.
