The Clermont Arts and Recreation Center has been selected as one of two winning projects in the "Perk Your Park" contest sponsored by Niagara Bottling in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).
The contest is an initiative that focuses on park and community revitalization across the country. Thanks to a generous grant from Niagara Bottling, the Clermont community will now have a new way to connect with the outdoors! Soon you will start to see big changes at the Clermont Arts and Recreation Center.
