Shaw Park

Shaw Park is located along Brentwood Blvd., just north of Forest Park Parkway, near the heart of Clayton's bustling business district. Shaw Park is the city's oldest and largest park. Mayor Charles A. Shaw first established this 47.47 acre park in 1935. With a welcoming canopy of majestic trees and open grass areas, as well as lovely gardens, Shaw Park offers a respite from the bustle of the city. The parks Century Garden is home to the sculpture 'Venus Victorious' by Pierre August Renoir, on loan from the St. Louis Art Museum. Shaw Park's most recent addition is a state of the art inclusive playground. The new Tree Top Playground was opened to the public in October 2010 and has a sprayground, an authentic tree house play structure, a roller slide, swings and many other accessible amenities.
