The Basin on Ashlan and Fowler:

The City of Clovis secured the funding for construction of a park on approximately 1/3-acre of unused property at a ponding basin. Features at the park include a play structure, picnic tables, barbecues, benches and a drinking fountain. Future plans for the site will provide landscaping of much of the adjacent 10.5-acre ponding basin.
