More than 3 decades of great parks & recreation! 


Over the years the parks department has grown with the addition of Clayton Community Park, Legend Park, All-Star Park and East Clayton Community and Dog Park. In 2010 the Clayton Community Center opened as a new home for the department complete with an indoor walking trail, pottery and art room and basketball court. The Recreation department is responsible for miles of paved greenway throughout town, baseball, softball and soccer fields, picnic shelters and more. Clayton Parks and Recreation hosts youth and adult athletic leagues, Summer Camps, After School, fitness, art and pottery classes and more. The department coordinates the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Good Friday, Independence Day Celebration with live music and fireworks, two Halloween Events, and a Santa’s Workshop.

Larry Bailey Scholarship

Larry Bailey was the Director of the Clayton Parks and Recreation Department from 1980 until 2018. Larry believes that recreation, parks and open space are extremely important to a healthy community, and through his commitment he helped make Clayton the community it is today. After his retirement, Larry’s friends, family and co-workers established the Larry Bailey Scholarship, to help continue his passion for providing recreation opportunities for all children. All money given to the scholarship fund is donated with the hope that a child who is not able to participate in a Clayton Parks and Recreation program due to lack of funds can be awarded a scholarship to help pay registration fees.
To apply please fill out the Application and return it to the Clayton Community Center.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorships are an excellent way for your business or organization to put your business or organization name and logo in front of thousands of potential customers, but, more importantly, help you become an integral part of the community by helping make our programs even more affordable for families. Your logo could be on the jerseys of more than 75 different basketball teams. Or on the front of a whole baseball team's uniforms. They wear the shirts to games, out in the community and keep them after the season is over. A banner with your name can hang from the stage at the area's largest July 4th fireworks show. OR a banner with your name and logo can line a ballfield for the rest of the year! 

We hope you'll click here and check out the sponsorships in this packet and consider supporting Clayton Parks and Recreation. If you have other ideas on how to partner with us, call us! Thanks in advance for helping support our families and the community!
