The City of Hugo has two special passive parks that have non-paved trails that provide great opportunity to connect with nature. Clearwater Creek Preserve offers a 1/2 mile creek side trail. Parking is available off of Fable Hill Circle North. The trail surface is made of wood chips and can be uneven or muddy, depending on the season. The trail head includes a large park sign and trash receptacle. Irish Avenue Park is located 14420 Irish Avenue North. A small gravel parking lot is available off street. A small sign and trash receptacle mark the start of the trails. There are several miles of looped trails throughout the property. The trails are mowed in the open prairie and can be uneven. Please be respectful of the owners of property adjacent to the parks and access the parks only through the entrances described.
Please note that there are special ordinances in place regarding these two passive parks:
