Clara May Berry Park is located next to the Humboldt County Library's Eureka Branch. The park features a sensory playground with play equipment, spinners and a mural all centered around the theme "BEE a Reader".
The land was gift-deeded in October, 1952 to the City of Eureka by Mrs. Berry shortly before her death. The work of clearing and leveling was again done by Mr. Coon with borrowed equipment. The playground was opened in 1952, but due to the lack of participation and fieldhouse facilities, it was closed in the early part of 1958. This area had been recommended by the Eureka Park and Recreation Commission to be sold, since the area is too small to properly conduct recreation activities.
In June 2019, City of Eureka was selected to receive a $30,000 play space grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Walt Disney Company. This investment supports NRPA and Disney’s combined goal of providing one million kids and families with greater access to play. The City of Eureka used the $30,000 grant to transform Clara May Berry Park into “The BEE a Reader Sensory Playground”, a new inclusive playground with conservation and literacy play themes for those with cognitive disabilities and includes equipment such as rockers, climbers, spinners and a safety fence.
