In 2006 the local community centre was extensively renovated and serves the community well. In 2014, the Clonown Community Site Project committee, with funding from Roscommon Leader, built a lit 400 metres walkway in a site close to the village centre. This further enhances the area and demonstrates the wonderful community spirit that exists. A playing field was opened in 2015, and there are further plans for a multi-use play area and buildings on this site. The annual 5k / 10k run, along with other events fund this project.
