Serving as the seat of Chilton County government, the leading community of Clanton is home to one of the county's proudest icons: the Clayton Peach Water Tower. Artfully decorated to resemble a mammoth peach poised on a green stem, the water tower heralds the county's position as the state's largest peach producer. Clanton welcomes newcomers to tree-shaded neighborhoods lined with a variety of single-family homes as well as opportunities for country living and ample acreage for large animals including horses. Clanton City Park crowns the city's recreational amenities by providing youth baseball complexes for boys and girls, regulation tennis courts, men's league softball fields, and Jack Hayes Field. The latter not only serves as the home of the high school baseball team but hosts regional tournaments and the annual peach auction. The community also provides a swimming pool, weight room, and skill center.
