Celebrating Clermont Park system on its 40th anniversary

The Clermont County Commissioners have proclaimed the month of July as Parks and Recreation Month in the county, citing the importance of the park system in establishing and maintaining the quality of life in our community.

“This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Clermont County Park District,” said Clermont Park District Director Chris Clingman. “Numerous partnerships, donations, and philanthropic events have enabled the park system to grow from the original 23 to over 500 acres today.”

The Clermont Park District includes five parks, two nature preserves, four river reserves, 2.5 miles of bike trail, two green spaces, plus a new park that is currently under development on Tealtown Road.
