Clawson: Little City with a Big Heart


Clawson: Little City with a Big Heart

clawson homepage

At just over two square miles in area Clawson and roughly 12,015 residents (according to the 2015 Census estimates and the SEMCOG Community Profile) we are one of the smallest communities in Southeastern Michigan and a first thought may be that not much could be happening in such a small place. A lot would be missed, though, by making that assumption. Exploring Clawson by foot is an easy and comfortable stroll or better yet following the well directed bike path with a friend will take you through quiet neighborhoods and to many points of interest. A large, wonderfully appointed city park may be the highlight of your bike ride. There are plenty of picnic spots with tables and barbeque grills. An exercise path winds through the park by tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, shuffle board lanes and swinging chairs built for two (or three). Nearby is the football field and track along with baseball and soccer fields.

On your way you’ll pass our beautiful Blair Memorial Library and Historical Museum both of which are full of interesting diversions and intriguing information. Park your bike for a little window shopping and visit the many fine shops in our downtown. More shopping and dining is nearby in our neighboring communities. Stop for a bite to eat or a snack or something for your sweet tooth. Activities are easy to find especially during the warmer months. Catch an afternoon outdoor concert-in-the-park, vist the Clawson Farmer’s Market, take a garden tour, and do not miss one of the most exciting 4th of July parades and fireworks in Michigan. 

Remember Clawson: Little City with a Big Heart.

There is an after hours drop box located in the vestibule entrance closest to the Clawson Post Office.  To avoid penalties or late charges, payments must be received BEFORE closing on the date the bill is due. When a due date falls on a weekend or a city designated holiday, payment will be accepted, without penalty, before close of the next business day the Treasurer’s office is open.
