Parks & Recreation

The City of Clarence is proud to maintain a beautiful City Park located along 1st Avenue.

Restrooms, playground equipment, BSA replica of the Statue of Liberty, two enclosed park shelters, an open shelter, a kitchen shelter, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, two baseball diamonds, and a disc golf course are all there for your enjoyment. The park also boasts a 1 mile walking trail around the perimeter of the park, a Veteran’s monument, and a new Splash Pad.

The park comes to life with activity in the summer with little league, softball games and a recreation program. Park shelters may be rented for reunions and other special occasions by visiting or calling City Hall. The cost is $25.00 plus a $25.00 cleaning deposit. The kitchen shelter may also be rented for $50.00 plus a $50.00 cleaning deposit.

The Splash Pad is open from Memorial Day to Labor day each year. Changes to the weather may impact these operational days, so if you have any questions please contact City Hall.

The public restrooms at the park are open from April 15th to October 15th each year. Similarly, weather may impact these operational days, so if you have any questions please contact City Hall.

An active park board makes decisions on park improvements. The kitchen and open shelter area were added to the west end of the middle park building in 2006. The park received a donation of land from the Younkger Estate that increased the size of the park by nearly double. A walking trail around the perimeter of the park has been completed by board members and many volunteers from the community. Park benches and lovely walking trail lights have been installed in memory of loved ones. The splash pad was completed in 2018, adding a fun water feature to the park.

The City of Clarence is also very proud to have a beautiful “pocket park” located right in the heart of downtown. This beautiful space includes a Veteran’s monument and flagpole, benches, beautifully kept garden, an operating classic timepiece, and an original Lincoln Highway marker.
