Shared with us by the Youtube Channel Decent Disc Golf

 ​The Clinton Parks & Recreation Department offers a variety of activities for each member of the family to enjoy. One of the main goals of the department is to improve recreational opportunities for all Clintonians and to allow each of them the opportunity to maximize  use of their leisure time for recreational enjoyment.

The Parks & Recreation Department has a variety of recreational  facilities available to our citizens. As our city continues to grow the  department is making every effort to comply with its' leisure needs  with organizing or assisting various groups with community events  such as: Autumblast, Christmas Events, Clinton City Schools Field  Days, and may other events.

One of the most unique aspects of the Clinton Parks & Recreation Department is its' relationship with the many athletic commissions throughout the city, which provides recreational sports activities for adults and children in baseball, softball, basketball, football, volleyball and bowling. Each one of these commissions is comprised of volunteers who organize and manage each sporting event and are commended for their efforts.

For more information on these programs or any recreation program, call the Clinton Community Center at 457-0642
