About Us

More than 3 decades of great parks and recreation!

Over the years, the parks department has grown with the addition of Clayton Community 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; fitness, art and pottery classes; and more.

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 (PDF) and return it to the Clayton Community Center.
