Clintonwood Park – Clarkston, Michigan – Review and Pics
Clintonwood Park in Clarkston, Michigan is a large park that boasts an impressive amount of amenities for sports fans. Clintonwood Park is operated by the Independence Township Parks and Recreation Department. Clintonwood does not charge vehicle admission making it ideal for free summer fun.
Among the features of Clintonwood Park:
- 4 baseball diamonds
- 3 softball diamonds
- 4 full-length Soccer Fields
- 4 tennis courts
- 4 sand volleyball courts
- basketball courts
- an inline skating rink (roller hockey)
- sheltered restroom facilities
- Two pavilions for rent
- A small playscape
- Clarkston Spraypark (requires admission fee)
- A walking trail surrounding the perimeter of the park
- Concession stands (open on league game nights)
The expansive Clintonwood Park is well-maintained and well-used. The fields are all marked clearly, provide suitable seating and even concession on some league nights.
Parking is a chore if you’ve never been there as the park is large and extremely spread out. You may have to drive a bit to find where you want to stop.
Despite the park being extremely sports-intensive, there are plenty of picnic tables and sitting areas to relax. The playground/playscape is nothing to write home about but it can keep kids occupied for a little while. I love the fact the park doesn’t charge for admission. It’s a great place to take the kids even if they don’t play soccer, football or baseball.
