Recreation & Parks


Clinton Recreation and Parks Department is dedicated to providing facilities and programs that respond to the changing needs of our community through preservation of open spaces and quality of life for future generations in a clean, safe, and inclusive environment.

Role of the Recreation & Parks Department

Open spaces, parks, and recreation provide opportunities for living, learning, and leading a full and productive life. The Clinton Recreation and Parks Department provides a variety of services to the citizens of Clinton and Sampson County. Recreation and Parks provides youth sports programs such as baseball, soccer, and basketball as well as adult sports such as softball and basketball. 

A variety of programs and activities are available to help keep senior citizens active and healthy. Special events such as the July 4th celebration and annual Easter egg hunt, help bring our community together. The department maintains four parks, including the 79-acre Royal Lane Park, two activity centers with gymnasiums, and a municipal pool.
