Recreation and Entertainment
Go boating, camping, sailing, or skiing on Milford Lake. Take a stroll through Wakefield's Kansas Landscape Arboretum. Whoop it up at the PRCA-sanctioned Longford Rodeo. Play a few rounds at one of Clay Center's two, nine-hole golf courses. Go hunting on miles of public land or on private game preserves. Bring your binoculars for a day of birding on the Steve Lloyd wetlands, or spend some time canoeing and fishing on the Republican River. A variety of sports and clubs are also available including photography, arts, swimming, wrestling, baseball, and softball among others.
Pinsetters is an eight lane bowling alley with grill, snack bar, arcade games, dart board, juke box and 4 flat screen tvs. Join a league, rent the center for a private party, or just hang out for your favorite ball game and bowl a few games.
Utility Park and Zoo has been a favorite family entertainment spot for generations. It has a very interesting background since the days when people worked to create the park as a way of paying their utility bills. The Public Utility Commission has recently acquired land to the west of the park to allow future growth and expanded park facilities.
Clay County is within a couple of hours driving distance to KSU, KU, Kansas City Chiefs, Royals, and Wichita.
