Clark Park, 2400 Lombard Avenue (created 1894) Everett Register   In the midst of hard times, Everett citizens voted in favor of a $30,000 park bond issue. The city purchased land in the north part of town and developed what was called “City Park.” By the early 1900s, the park was an important community center, complete with a bandstand and canon.  In 1931, it was renamed in honor of John J. Clark, one of Everett’s earliest businessmen and an important community booster.In 1892, Clark had left Wisconsin and moved to Everett to invest $100,000 in one of the city’s first commercial buildings.
