Over the years we have increased and improved the park infrastructure, increased the quantity and quality of our programs, won several Awards. We provide areas of play at our 39 parks encompassing over 210 acres. The programs provided by the Department are available for preschool through senior citizens and encompass: educational, cultural, social, leadership, athletic, fitness, citizenship, and volunteer opportunities. Each year our department creates a motto for that represents our recreation goals for the whole year. The 2018 Motto is… Plan, Implement and Achieve. Here is a note from the Recreation Supervisor Debbie Oliver.
The mission of the Clifton Recreation Department is to provide the community with a wide variety of youth, adult and family activities that offer our citizens the opportunity to use personal leisure time in a viable, productive and gratifying manner at various facilities that provide both active and passive atmospheres while maintaining historical and environmental awareness.
