1950 New Willow Road (Willow Road & Bristol Street)
Clarkson Park is a 3-acre park named after Jim Clarkson, a Northfield resident and one of the pioneers in the development of the Northfield Park District. The park was renovated in 2004 to add new amenities throughout, including a children's playground and the Cavallari Pavilion, our open-air shelter that has a number of picnic tables underneath it, making it perfect for small outdoor gatherings. The highlight of the 2004 renovation was the remodel of the Clarkson Lodge, which now includes indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a concesssion stand, and meeting/party area inside.
Every winter we turn Clarkson Park into our outdoor ice rink, which will typically be open from December through January, weather permitting. Clarkson Park is also home of many of our Special Events such as the State Fair/Ribfest, Egg Hunt, Movie Nights, and Chidren’s Summer Concert Series.
