The Children’s play areas within Clayton Community Park consist of a 2-5 age group section and a 5-12 age group section, each with age-appropriate children’s play structures and equipment. Because of wear and tear and general aging (the play area is approximately 15 years old), the City of Clayton will be replacing the 5-12 age group children’s play equipment and the rubberized or “resilient” surface in this section. Funding from Prop. 68 will provide about $170,000 of the estimated $235,000 project cost. The remainder will be funded by the City of Clayton and by local community groups. There are 38 components to the children’s play structure/equipment; Clayton Valley Concord/Sunrise Rotary Club has committed to the purchase of ten of the thirty-eight component equipment pieces. All Equipment must be 100% ASTM, CPSC and ADA compliant. Clayton Community Park, located at 7411 Marsh Creek Road, in Clayton, CA, is a 42-acre park that consists of baseball and soccer fields, large and small group covered picnic areas, and two children’s areas with play structures and equipment. There are also restrooms, parking areas and open spaces and trail that connect to the East Bay Regional Park trails system and the Mt. Diablo State Park trails. Clayton Community Park is the largest of the City of Clayton’s parks and has a high rate of use by thousands of residents and local community members.
