On behalf of the City of Clintonville & the Parks & Recreation Department, we would like to thank the Clintonville High School and community members whom came forward and designed and completed this beautiful mural.  With a lot of time work and long days the project was completed.  This is a great addition to our community.  The mural can be found on the East side of the old Vet's office (26 10th Street).  The best view is from the Clintonville Community Center parking lot.

Clintonville Parks & Recreation Department

The Clintonville Parks & Recreation Department is staffed by a director, three parks laborers, all of whom are full time. In addition, the department has a part time facilities custodian and numerous seasonal staff who assist with laborer positions and recreational activities.  The goal of the department is to provide a system of easily accessible and well maintained open spaces and parks which will provide recreation opportunities and enhance the quality of life for all city residents and visitors.

Clintonville has two community parks and thirteen neighborhood parks/greenspaces. In addition, there are three boat landings with one at Ice House Landing near Hemlock and N. 12th Streets, one at Pigeon Lake Wayside near Mathew's Supper Club, and one at Pickerel Point Memorial Park off West street.  The department provides many opportunities for people young and old to participate in recreational activities. There are a wide variety of classes and programs offered by the department. Clintonville owns and operates the Community/Senior Center at 30 S. Main Street. There are five outdoor shelters and one newly renovated indoor shelter that can be rented by the public. The Jim Simpson Memorial Disc Golf Course, a nine basket par 3 course which opened in the Fall of 2013, is also available to the public in W.A. Olen Park.

Clintonville Street Tree Program - Monday, August 16, 2021
