Making an impact in our community.
Thanks to the Clay Township Impact Program, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation is helping improve the community with a focus on parks and public safety. This program will provide benefits for all township residents, schools and businesses and will make our community a better place to live, work and play.
One of the primary initiatives of this program is updating and enhancing existing parks by making them more accessible, safer and available year-round. The Clay Township Trustee and Board Members have been entrusted with making our township a safer and more enjoyable place to live. They have been tasked with providing vital services to our community and this program is an important part of how they serve the residents of our township.
