Clara Barton

The Clara Barton neighborhood was part of the original townsite for the City of Fargo. It is primarily a residential neighborhood that borders the University Drive commercial corridor and two other major thoroughfares on the north (13th Avenue) and south (I-94). Lindenwood Park is located on the east side of the neighborhood and provides residents with access to one of the city’s most treasured regional parks.

This area is also home to the Fargo Water Treatment Plant (opened June 1997) and Xeriscape garden, which are located in the northwest corner of the neighborhood. Nativity School is located in the southwest corner of the neighborhood. Essentia and Sanford Health have campuses on University Drive. The neighborhood is named after Clara Barton Elementary School, located on 6th Street and 14th Avenue South.
