Labor Day Weekend Recreation
Man fishing off a floating dock at Clarks Bridge Park in Gainesville, Georgia at sunset. Clarks Bridge Park is on the north end of Lake Sydney Lanier on the Chattahoochee River. It covers both sides of the road, and has several boat ramps, a beach, forested lawns, and picnic tables.
Clarks Bridge Park is perhaps best known for the role it played in the 1996 Olympic Games as the venue for rowing, kayaking, and canoeing events.
The Olympic is still used for local, national and worldwide competitions as well as a training site for athletes. Supposedly in 2018, the ICF Dragon Boat World Championship will be held in the Unitied States for the first time, and will be on Lake Lanier at this venue. (5.0 sec at f/11, ISO 50)
