Clive is known for its Greenbelt Park and trail system running through the entire community. Considered "Distinct By Nature" the community offers a high quality of life for its residents through its recreation offerings and one of the most recognized Public Art Programs in the state. Clive serves as the axis of the western Des Moines suburbs, being located between Urbandale and West Des Moines along the major transportation corridors of I-35, I-80 and I-235.
The Clive aquatic center is also located in the heart of Clive. The aquatic center has a leisure pool, a lap pool swimming area, and a lazy river. The leisure pool is a great place for children and young families to learn to swim and enjoy the water. This pool includes a zero-depth entry and progresses to 3 ft 10 in. There are fountains, a toddler treehouse slide, sprays, shade seating, and sometimes a turtle or log float is in the pool to climb around. The lap pool is for advanced swimmings, adults and teenagers to enjoy, the lap pool as a drop slide and a diving board located in the deep end. There are six 25-meter swimming lanes available. This pool aslo has a basketball hoop and two tower waterslides. A beaver and log floatable are available some days throughout the summer. The lazy river is a current tream with a few splashes of excitement from the "trees". Grab a tube and enjoy (tubes are provided). The lazy river is not suited for infants and toddlers. Children under 48 inches must be accompanied by an adult using a double tube. (One adult to one child)
