The excellent performance of Clayton Parks and Recreation is a key element in what makes Clayton “THE PREMIER COMMUNITY FOR ACTIVE FAMILIES.” We began developing our recreation system and parks more than thirty years ago with the acquisition of Municipal Park. Since that time, both the town and the park system have grown and upgraded dramatically with the addition of Community Park, Legend Park, and All-Star Park. The Recreation Department is responsible for three park sites containing five athletic fields, seven tennis courts, a basketball court, two sand volleyball courts, eight bocce courts, a bike trail---and in coordination with The Clayton Center, programs for fitness, education, and recreation. We sponsor adult athletic leagues, too, and coordinate efforts to provide outstanding youth sports programs. This department also handles community events such as the Easter Egg Hunt every Good Friday, Independence Day Celebration every July 4th with live music and fireworks, two Halloween events, and a Santa's Workshop in December for children to make gifts for Christmas. The Department office is located in the Clayton Community Center (715 Amelia Church Road).
