Clear Creek Park
127.4 acres of land near the Little Miami River is the current site of up to 23 soccer/lacrosse/rugby fields, 6 pickleball courts, .7 miles of paved trail, plus an award winning “Oasis” which houses seasonal restroom facilities, landscaped arbors, and a hexagonal pavilion. Lacrosse fields, Rugby fields, and Football practice areas are available upon request.
Clear Creek Park serves as a trailhead on the Little Miami Scenic Trail. The .7 mile extension of the regional bike trail through the park connects the Beechmont Levee and the Little Miami Golf Center. The Beechmont Bridge Connection Project will take the trail across the Little Miami Scenic River, tying it into the Lunken Airport Trail and Ohio River Trail to downtown Cincinnati. The Little Miami Scenic Trail is a section on the larger Ohio to Erie Trail, linking the Ohio River to Lake Erie. Trail partners include, but are not limited to: Great Parks of Hamilton County, Anderson Township, and Ohio Department of Transportation. Dogs are permitted on the trail and must be held on a 6′ leash at all times.
Hours of operation
The park is open from dawn to dusk. All practices or games on these fields require a permit. Clear Creek Park is prone to seasonal flooding. The main parking lot is gated overnight and during flooding.
The park was initially purchased as 2 individual tracts of land: the Ragland Tract and the Burger Tract. The Ragland Tract was purchased by the Anderson Township Trustees on January 24, 1992. The Burger Tract was jointly purchased in April of 1993 by the Anderson Township Trustees and the Anderson Park District. The Trustees deeded this property to the APD in late 1993.
The park was expanded in 2011, with the acquisition of the adjacent 27.7 acres, including the Driving Range, operated by a private enterprise.
