The Town Of Clarkson


Clarkson is a large town. It has more than fifty thousand people living there. It
sits next to a large river, the Clark River. Every day, people take the ferry from
North Clarkson to South Clarkson to go to work.
Most people live in North Clarkson. There are many trees and the streets are
very broad. When the sun shines and the children run and play in the safe
streets, North Clarkson is a wonderful place to live.
South Clarkson has a lot of shops and factories. People don't live there, but
they come in the morning to work. There is also a big stadium where the
Clarkson Tigers play. On Sundays, many people go to watch their favorite team.
At the weekend, the people from Clarkson enjoy walking along the bank of the
Clark River. They also sail small boats on the water and if there is a little wind,
they fly kites in the large park.
Every year, Clarkson grows in size because a lot of people come to live there.
The government builds more houses and the streets get busier. Maybe in the
future, if the town continues to grow, it will become a city!
