Parks and Recreation
Clear Lake Parks and Recreation Department offers numerous programs and activities for children and adults throughout the year.
City Beach

We strive to create opportunities for the citizens of Clear Lake and the surrounding community to be active, have fun, and improve their quality of life.  We want people to get out and experience our programs, enjoy our facilities, and relax in our parks.

Join us today!


One of the newer additions to Clear Lake is the Dog Park located at 12th Ave S on the east side of the  Outlet Recreation Complex and is over 2.5 acres of fenced turf grass with both a "small" dog area for dogs under 25 lbs and a "large" dog area for larger dogs. The Dog Park contains agility equipment and drinking fountains.
