CLARKSVILLE, Ind. — Clarksville Parks and Recreation is asking for the public's help in naming a new baby goat born at Ray Lawrence Park.

The female goat is one in a family of goats that maintains the grass and vegetation around the park's storm water basin. The Public Works Department said the goats were "hired" to solve landscaping issues in the late 1980s because the area was challenging for crews to work on.

The goats, the department said, live in a fenced-in area. Goats are fed, watered, and monitored by the Pubic Works Departments.

Clarksville Parks and Recreation Facebook page has narrowed the goat names down to Ivory, Daisy, or Pearl. The final name will be announced on September 18. The public can vote on the names here.
