Clayton Park

Located along the southwestern border of Rockingham and bordering the northern part of Fairview, Clayton Park is named after a family that owned property in the area extending up the southern slope of Geizer's Hill. The Clayton Park development began on July 12, 1962 when it received approval from the Municipality of the County of Halifax. Clayton Park, Rockingham and Fairview were all amalgamated into the City of Halifax in 1969. As regional water and sewer services extended post-1969, residential and commercial development followed until the main phase was completed by the late 1970s and early 1980s, with part of the development being altered slightly to the south side of Geizer's Hill in 1975. Clayton Park was created as an upper middle class community and its prime developer was the Shaw company, which placed certain architectural requirements for houses and apartments, among which was a high percentage of brick; Shaw being the largest brick manufacturer in Atlantic Canada. Primary house colors consisted of earthy tones of adobe reds, greens, browns and grays, which were popular for the mid-century post and beam house styles of the 1950s. Canadian architects Henry Fliess, Peter Dickinson, James A. Murray and Venchiarutti & Venchiarutti can be attributed to many of the Modern house designs.[citation needed] Modeled after the successful post-war "new-town" of Don Mills, Ontario in the decade before,[citation needed] Clayton Park consisted of 'roomy' quarter acre to half acre lots on winding streets, an elementary and middle school, churches, a library, two walkable shopping plazas, a recreational centre (now demolished), and an abundance of green space.
