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.

Visitors can enjoy a handicap accessible quarter 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.
