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


Chapman Plaza (Shaw Park North Corner)

The project will serve to connect Clayton’s vibrant and growing downtown community with the park by adding a welcoming entry plaza and connecting trail at the corner of Brentwood and Forsyth.  The plan also outlines a cascading waterfall garden and pond to connect children with nature.  The project originally appeared in the Shaw Park Master Plan Overlay in 2013 and is funded by a donation through the Clayton Century Foundation.

DeMun Park Renovation

The playgrounds at DeMun Park are scheduled to be replaced in 2018. The City of Clayton is currently creating a master plan for the park to plan possible additional renovations to the park as a whole.

Most trees in the park are planned to be saved in this project. However, the ash tree will likely be removed to help slow the spread of the devistating emerald ash borer (EAB). More information about EAB can be found on the Emarald Ash Borer page.

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.
