Cloquet has a wide variety of parks and services. It has local neighborhood parks, community parks, athletic facilities, and natural preservation areas. In addition, a trail system has being developed to expand access for pedestrian and wheel traffic throughout the City and parks and a new single lane bike trail through Pine Valley. All of these benefit the citizens and visitors to Cloquet by providing places for leisure activities. Cloquet also has an Adopt A Park program where you can learn how to help out your favorite City's Parks.
Our City parks include hundreds of acres of park land and over 2 miles of trails to explore. Our parks are designed for both summer and winter recreational activities and provide excellent opportunities for a variety of leisure settings.
By Municipal Code, all parks are generally open for public use from 6:00 am to 12:00 midnight. However, individual parks may have different hours posted which will take precedent. Anyone interested in renting or scheduling the use of a park or park facility should contact Cloquet Community Education.

The crown jewel of Cloquet parks is located in the heart of Cloquet at the intersection of Highway 33 and Carlton Avenue. This park provides citizens of Cloquet and surrounding areas the most diverse uses of all our city parks.
A lighted adult softball field, which has become home to a local ultimate frisbee league, serves as home for the Cloquet Adult Softball Association and its league games. Two lighted tennis courts, basketball court, outdoor hockey rink, sliding hill, playground and picnic areas are available.
The newly refurbished Beach at Pinehurst Park is a great place to go for a swim with filtered, chlorinated water and a sand bottom. The clean, cool water is refreshing on a hot summer day. Sunbathers and children love the sand, it's like a trip to the beach!
Features of The Beach include zero entry (great for the little ones), swim lanes and a 6 foot center depth for swimmers of all levels, changing rooms, kiddie slides, sand volleyball, shade umbrellas, and concessions are available.
Lifeguards are on duty and follow the American Red Cross safety guidelines.
