Things to do

Exploration Green was designed so that while it is providing a vital water detention and retention function for the Clear Lake area, it will also be done aesthetically with imbedded areas that can be mutually beneficial and enjoyable by the residents and local community.

The master design and layout incorporates a number of open spaces that can serve multiple purposes- a leisure and relaxation area, benches and scenic lookouts, walking and jogging trails, athletic fields, and more!

Walking, Running, and Biking

Exploration Green Will have nearly six miles of 10-foot wide concrete trails available for walking, running and biking.  The completed Phase 1 loop is approximately 1.1 miles long.  And the completed Phase 2 loop is approximately 1.2 miles long.  Former golf cart paths are available for use on the undeveloped Phases 3, 4, and 5.  The EGC is working now to raise funds to complete new trails as each area is developed, maintaining the six mile distance and connecting to local schools, shopping, government offices, libraries, and places of work.

Observing Nature

According to iNaturalist's Exploration Green page, Exploration Green is now home to more than 600 species of plants, animals, birds, and insects.  And eBird lists Exploration Green as a "hotspot" with approximately 150 species of bird.

Open Green Spaces

Athletic Fields

Numerous open green spaces are planned throughout Exploration Green.  These will be not only aesthetically enhancing, but also a wonderful amenity for community enjoyment.  These spaces will be accessible for picnicking, open game space and leisure activities.  Additionally, all of the landscaping will be designed to attract natural wildlife, including native birds and butterflies, further adding to the enjoyment of these open spaces.

Two sports fields have been constructed on Exploration Green Phase 1 near the Clear Lake Recreation Center.  Local residents requested these to create more practice fields for little league sports. 

The fields are complete, and will be available on a first come/first serve basis once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
