Elrick & Rataj on WJR on the upcoming Winter Carnival

“A place to go and be kids.” 

Our Hockey Classic is just over a week away!  ML Elrick and Mike Rataj will be squaring up on the ice for the second year, a fantastic end to our Annual Winter Carnival on this 25th Anniversary of the Clark Park Coalition!

WJR NewsClick here to hear Elrick and Rataj talk about why the park is so special both for the southwest community and the city of Detroit. The show aired Friday morning, February 18th.


As Miss Kate likes to say, “It is one of the few jewels in the city of Detroit left in the neighborhoods.”

We hope to see you next Saturday, February 27th for our afternoon Carnival from 12-4PM, and Hockey Classic at 6:30PM!
