About the Park

Grassy slopes guide you into Clinton, a welcoming park with playing fields, a playground, and a wading pool. This is also a wonderful place to bring a lunch and sit at one of the shaded picnic tables, or to stroll down the tree-lined central pathway.

 

History

The park was named after its original bounding street, Clinton, on September 9, 1926. At the time, many city streets were named for small towns located in the Interior of British Columbia. Later, when Clinton Street was renamed “Penticton” the City felt the park name should follow suit but this idea was rejected by the Park Board Commissioners of the day.
