Hours: Sunrise to Sunset
The Dog Park is located adjacent to Marsh Creek Road, North of Regency Drive, across from the Community Park.
In 1995, the Clayton Community Service Commission conducted a survey that included a question about a potential off leash dog park. They found that there was a 61% support for such a park.
In 1997 the City received the first request for an off leash dog park. In 2000 the City granted approval of the current dog park site, agreeing to install fencing, benches, a table and waste receptacles.
The City stated that it was not in a position to provide water to the dog park. A group of local residents established the Clayton K-9 Coalition in order to raise funds necessary to provide water to the park.
In 2003, at a cost of over $15,000, the Clayton K-9 Coalition installed the water meter. Additional funds were necessary for the installation of the water line and drinking fountain – and in June 2005 this task was completed.
In addition, an Eagle Scout Project was completed in April 2005 that provided an arbor shade structure over the picnic table.
