Recreation

The Recreation Center in Claremore Oklahoma was to the general public on December 11th, 1999. The center is owned by the City of Claremore and the Department for Recreation and Parks operates it.The recreation Center is spread on approximately 80,000square feet and the approximate value of the facility is around $& million and it has been on the increase due to investments. A one penny-sales tax which operated for quite some time generated enough money for the construction of the center. Membership taxes, user groups, swim lessons and other fees for different activities generate constant money for the operations and maintenance.

Back in 2009 an Adult summer Football League was initiated; there’s also a lake park where you can go duck hunting, fishing and boating, or just for jogging and walking. There are also picnic areas, shelters and several playgrounds, so you can have fun at the same time with your children. The lake park was created in 1929. Before that here was just farm land.

You should know that duck hunting is only allowed during the hunting season and that you need a special permit . There are also 16 duck blind slots on the Claremore lake. If you want to compete in the draw you need to show an Oklahoma driver’s license.

Also, you need to know that you cannot leave your pets to run around. Animals must be kept under control at all times in the park. Also, playgrounds cannot be rented, but they look very well and are well equipped. Picnic tables and several grills are available for everyone to use so you can have a wonderful family picnic in this park. Bicycle lanes and pedestrian friendly routes are a high priority in the city of Claremore. There’s a one mile asphalt section near the Recreation Center. It is a multiuse trail.
