Tips for birding Franks Park
Franks Park has a stretch of Clover Groff Run that has been re-designed to look like it did back before city planners made it into a straight-line stream for property reasons. It now pleasantly meanders along a “natural” bank with plenty of trees and weedy cover and the occasional marshy area that attracts birds. There’s also a pond among the sports fields that make up much of the park. The Mudsock Trail parallels Clover Groff Run through the Clover Groff Natural Area.
