The Township Park at the west end of Clark Lake has reopened. On Monday evening, Township trustees closed the park temporarily after a juvenile cut himself over the weekend. According to Interim Police Chief Jay Niles, the injury required stitches at an urgent care facility in Jackson.
A volunteer scuba team from Divers Mast searched the waters around the park yesterday in an attempt to find what caused the injury. Although not able to pinpoint a cause, they found a couple issues to correct. They removed a cement block found in the swim area. The swim buoys are attached by dock posts that are screwed tightly against the lake bottom. The divers found a cap over a post missing, and replaced it.
