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.


Late July 2017 Update

The pavilion at the pond and the stone work at the plaza are well underway.

Crews have been hard at work adding the natural stones that will create the falls between the plaza and pond. The spring rain has limited the work days lately, but they are still on schedule. Check out the view of the falls below:
