The 1986 Village of Clayton LWRP provides a historic perspective on the evolution of the Village’s waterfront revitalization efforts along St. Lawrence River.

Building on the recent construction of the Frink Park Pavilion, the Village and Town of Clayton are currently planning to extend Riverwalk and install new transient docking facilities along the St. Lawrence River to increase public access to its waterfront and downtown.
