This fall, residents in the Town of Clayton will have the opportunity to weigh in on $18 million in general obligations bonds that will help to fund playgrounds, greenways, a splash pad, a community center expansion for seniors, updated athletic fields, increased parking, picnic shelters, a community stage in downtown, upgrades to accommodate an inclusive playground and more! Passage of the bond will not require a tax increase. 

Projects are slated to begin in 2020 with a target completion by 2026.

Municipal Park off Stallings Street in Downtown Clayton is the Town’s first and oldest park, with many of its current features dating back to the early 1980’s. The Clayton Parks and Recreation Bond plan calls for an updated playground, a possible splash pad, updated athletic fields, a community stage with large green space, picnic shelters, updated restrooms and a walking trail that will connect into the popular Mountain-to-Sea Trail. 


East Clayton Community Park, located on Glen Laurel Road, is currently home to a disc golf course, and soccer, baseball and multipurpose fields. A public-private partnership is funding a destination universal playground in the coming years and the Parks and Recreation Bond would add birthday party sized picnic shelters, pave and expand parking, build an updated bathroom building, light the multipurpose fields for extended use and install artificial turf fields. 


Clayton Community Park opened almost 20 years ago to meet the needs of our growing community. The Parks and Recreation Bond will expand our most popular park with a new playground, updated restrooms, additional walking trails, expanded tennis courts, additional picnic shelters, a dog park and expanded parking.  


The Clayton Community Center is currently home to a basketball gym, art, pottery and group fitness room as well as flexible childcare space. The Parks and Recreation Bond would build an addition to the existing space and offer programing space for youth and seniors, as well as room rentals. The bond would also provide additional fitness equipment areas, outdoor sports courts, shade for the existing playground and expanded parking.  


Town Square is on Main Street in the heart of Downtown Clayton just across from Town Hall. Here the Town and various community organizations including the Clayton Downtown Development Association, the Chamber of Commerce, and Clayton Rotary host annual events like the Town Square Concert series,free movie nights, the Shindig, Mondo Roots Music & Art Festival and much more. A permanent stage in this location along with improved parking would reduce annual expenses and make this public space more suited to hosting events. 

Horne Square, just down Main Street from Town Square, is another hub of activity and was always envisioned as a gathering place. Improvements to increase parking, a possible fountain/splash bad and enlarged event space would help this public square to better host gatherings like the weekly Saturday Clayton Farm and Community Market, Last Friday and other events. 

A voter bond referendum is required for the Town  to issue general obligation bonds, which are the least expensive financing option available to us. Thanks the Town of Clayton's exceptional bond rating, this bond will help the town leverage millions that it would not otherwise be able to over the next 7 years.
