Below are updates for projects currently underway with Clayton Parks and Recreation. 

Shaw Park Multi-Use Facility (former Ice Rink)

This project will include the construction of a year-round multi-use facility that will serve as an outdoor ice rink in the winter and a field/event space and tennis building the remainder of the year. The existing ice rink opened in 1961 and, while it has served the community well over these past 55 years, is long past the life expectancy for a facility of this type. The system that operates the rink needs to be replaced; the slab is subject to significant thawing due to cracking and the underlying system during the season; and the building itself has deteriorated, in particular in the rooms that service the ice-making equipment. This project will enable us to address the needs of the rink while expanding space available for field sports as well as special events, both of which are in need of additional space.
