This summer has many exciting new, and improved, opportunities for Clarksville citizens! We will be reopening Swan Lake Pool with a brand new look including an accessible parking lot, renovated restrooms, two new pavilions, four reservable cabanas, a refurbished slide, a splash pad for the little ones and more. We’ll be adding forty plus parking spaces at the always popular Pollard Road Trailhead of the Greenway, due to the generosity of an adjacent landowner. Construction will be underway on the next section of the Red River Trail and canoe and kayak access off of Kraft Street. Swan Lake Golf Course will be in full swing, pun intended, with their new bluetooth and GPS equipped golf carts. And as always, we’ll have a schedule of new programs and events with something for everyone. We hope you will join us for some summertime fun!
