In the Spring of 2011, Erie County graciously awarded Harborcreek Township over 425 acres of wooded parkland known as Six Mile Creek Park. Since the acquisition, the Harborcreek Parks Department has created community access and a parking lot in the 7700 block of Clark Road. From this entrance, residents can enjoy a handicap accessible ¼+ mile trail and scenic overlook, as well as other trails to both the east and west of the parking lot. This heavily wooded property is home to at least 8 native species of trees and 10 varieties of native perennials. Six Mile creek meanders through the entire park – offering hikers and photographers ideal vistas to enjoy. The park perimeter is posted for the benefit of park users as well as neighboring property owners. Future plans for Six Mile Creek Park include trail improvements, expansion, and mapping.
