Clark Park and its Nature Center join the Cape Fear River Trail and Moses Mathis “Bicycle Man” playground/trailhead to form a complex suited to hours of enjoyment and education. It is the city’s second largest regional park. It remains a natural woodland area dedicated to preserving the environment, educating the public on North Carolina plants and wildlife, and providing camping. The Nature Center museum features displays and live animals. Visitors can picnic overlooking the woods and one of the highest waterfalls east of the mountains. For those interested in walking, jogging or bicycling, the park serves as a trailhead for the Cape Fear River Trail, and features dedicated mountain-biking trails. Well behaved, leashed pets are welcome on the trails, as long you clean up after them.

This attraction is on Cumberland County's All-American Adventure Trail.
