Park Locations

Cleves Community Park property was donated many years ago to the Village of Cleves from the Gulf Refinery on Route 128. The park is maintained predominantly by user and park entrance fees, and assistance from the Cleves Maintenance Department. The Village does not maintain baseball fields or soccer goals and nets, these fields are generally maintained by the organizations using them. Cleves Community Park does not "close" for the winter, but the Village of Cleves reserves the right to close the park to the public at any time.
