Pool passes are now available at the Parks and Rec office throughout the summer, and at all three community centers through June 6.

Be sure to mark Saturday, June 6th, as for the kick off of the much anticipated Downtown Market. The first Downtown Market will feature a “‘green” theme where vendors and patrons will be provided with information on how to be kinder to the earth.
The Market is still in need of vendors. If you are interested in selling your products, contact the Parks and Recreation office for more information or visit www.cityofclarksville.com. Downtown Market vendors may sell fresh produce, homemade items, fresh flowers and more.
