Lion’s Club Park in Olde Town Clinton features an updated playground designed for children of all abilities. It’s ADA compliant and visually impaired friendly.
“Any child can play regardless of their limitations. So any of the implements here, they can get on or off. They can play with their siblings. Their friends don’t have to stand off to the side,” explained Clinton Mayor Phil Fisher.
City leaders believe that the enhanced park will provide generations of neighbors the opportunity to make more memories and continue the rich history of a great community park in the heart of Olde Towne.
Along with having an ability inclusive playground, the park also includes a picnic pavilion, walking trail, amphitheater for live music and restrooms.
The new Lion’s Club Park is located at 251 East Leake Street, directly across East Leake Street from the former park location.
There is a nominal cost to reserve the facilities for parties and functions. To reserve the picnic pavillion or stage for an event, please contact Kari Hobbs, Clinton Parks and Recreation at 601-924-6082.
