Tucked behind The Scout House (a landmark to anyone from Antioch) is a park known as The Clifford Park. As far as I know, the park doesn’t officially have a name, and there is no signage. The park was originally built for students attending Camp Crayon in The Scout House, but it’s open to the public.
Clifford Park Tot Lot, Antioch
Located at the corner of Cunningham and Poplar, this small tot park is a great place to stop when running errands in town or on a walk. The Antioch Aqua Center, Antioch Library, Dunkin’ Donuts, Little Beans Coffee Company, and many other shops and restaurants are all within walking distance of the park, too.
Although the park amenities are nothing to rave about, it is conveniently located and usually empty. Occasionally you’ll bump into the day campers in the summer or pre-school students during the school year; however, I rarely see anyone there.
