We are able to provide a variety of recreational opportunities to Clay County's citizens and visitors. Program and activity information may be obtained by calling (904) 284 or 269-6378. We maintain 10 community parks, 19 neighborhood parks, and 11 public boat ramp lanes, as well as approximately thirty-five miles of hiking, biking and walking trails. We also maintain a three-acre fishing pond in conjunction with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission located at Ronnie Van Zant Park in the Lake Asbury area.
