Center of Clayton Renovation Update

Visitors will begin to notice some of the incredible changes in June with the demolition of the front area that currently houses the Youth Activity Center.
Post Date:05/22/2019 10:21 AM

Renovations plans for The Center of Clayton will come to life in the coming year after the official approval this past May by the Clayton Recreation, Sports and Wellness Commission. The project is the result of three years of public input to address the changing needs of the students and members as well as address key mechanical systems that are in need of an update.

Visitors will begin to notice some of the incredible changes in June with the demolition of the front area that currently houses the Youth Activity Center. This space will eventually expand to house administrative offices on the first floor which will free up space next to the pool for a party room. On the second-floor, exercisers will enjoy a new floor to ceiling window-view while using the cardio area. Fresh surfaces will revitalize the rubber floored gyms and track and swimmers will enjoy fully updated pool surfaces, play feature and decks. Additionally, each area of the building will get a facelift with fresh furnishings, paint and fixtures. Each upgrade has been selected with members and students in mind and with an eye to improving the building’s energy conservation. The project is fully funded though the capital improvement budgets of the building’s parent organizations, the City of Clayton and the School District of Clayton with a $5.3 million pledge from each.
