The Chapman Plaza at Shaw Park & Gardens project is in full swing! Thanks to a partnership between the Chapman Family, Barry-Wehmiller, the City of Clayton, the Clayton Century Foundation and SWT Design, the northeast corner of Shaw Park (at Forsyth and South Brentwood boulevards) will soon be transformed into a magnificent plaza with an infinity fountain, benches, pergola and more. The lovely Plaza opens onto a walkway that descends along a cascading waterfall and colorful garden beds into the park, ultimately leading to a tranquil pavilion that overlooks the skyline of Clayton. Part of the Shaw Park Master Plan Overlay, Chapman Plaza & Gardens aims not only to enhance this gateway into the park, but also encourage others to share in our commitment to be a revitalizing force for good in our community. The project is scheduled for completion early Fall 2017.
