Shaw Park Trail Construction Set to Begin in Clayton

An Ellisville company has won a contract totaling approximately $421,000 for the project.

Construction on a new recreational trail in Clayton's Shaw Park is set to begin late this month after aldermen unanimously approved a contract for the project at a Tuesday meeting.

Ellisville-based Krupp Construction will be responsible for the demolition and installation of new asphalt trails, landscaping and a trail connector running between the Shaw Park Ice Rink and Shaw Park Tennis Center, among other components, a memo from City Manager Craig Owens and parks director Patty DeForrest states.

The project budget totals approximately $421,000, including a $30,000 contingency.

A majority of the money for the project comes from fundraising by the Clayton Century Foundation. Donors include Brown Shoe ($150,000), the Moneta Group and the Moneta Group Charitable Foundation ($75,000) and William T. Kemper Foundation-Commerce Bank, Trustee and the Commerce Bancshares Foundation ($25,000).

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources also is providing a $100,000 grant.

"This is a really nice example of a public-private partnership," Mayor Linda Goldstein said before aldermen voted.

The project is slated for completion by May 1.

An outdoor fitness area and art for a nature garden also are planned but are not included in this portion of the project.
