As the Center nears its twentieth year of operation, mechanical systems including the aquatic center air quality control unit are in need of replacement. These large systems have reached their life expectancy and replacement will enable the Center to continue to handle its large volume of daily visitors.  The project will also include enhancements of the member experience through improved and expanded amenities as well as energy conservation strategies. A project to create an additional 140 parking spaces and a new turf field for Clayton High School is concurrently under construction.

Center of Clayton Closure Update 5-15

Publish Date:05/15/2020 1:28 PM
St. Louis County’s most recent guidance titled “Business and Individual Guidelines for Social Distancing and Re-Opening” will go into effect on Monday, May 18. While some businesses will be permitted to reopen with modifications, recreational facilities including gyms and fitness centers, playgrounds, indoor and outdoor public pools, and sport courts remain prohibited from opening until further notice. Full details are on the County's Site

We have been working hard on various contingency plans for reopening The Center of Clayton along with our other Parks and Recreation facilities and programs. We will make final decisions and share the details once we have further guidance from St. Louis County.

In the meantime, we would like to share that we anticipate the completion of all renovations, including the weight areas, track, and parking lot this month. As we near completion, staff will mobilize to deep clean and sanitize each area of the facility.

We miss you and look forward to serving you again soon! Until then, greenspaces in Clayton’s parks remain open for you to enjoy.

Sincerely,

Clayton Parks and Recreation
