Welcome to Clay County, Florida!
Situated in Northeast Florida, Clay County lies southwest of the City of Jacksonville and west of historic St. Augustine. Clay County’s entire eastern border is nestled along the banks of the scenic St. Johns River and miles of undeveloped woodlands dot our interior.
Those of us who live within the six hundred miles that comprise Clay County know first hand of the county’s natural beauty and vast natural, historic, recreational and agricultural resources. Founded almost one hundred and fifty years ago, our county has developed into a diverse mixture of suburban and rural areas and is a vivid panorama of productive, modern living; superior schools; a well-trained, skilled workforce; bustling retail centers and economic vitality.
Clay County is a haven for those who love nature and the outdoors and is the home of some of the region’s best golf courses, public parks and walking & bicycling trails. Add the enjoyment of boating, fishing, canoeing or kayaking on our forty-six square miles of lakes and rivers and you can see why we feel Clay County is a pretty special place!
Whether you’re among nearly 210,000 people who call our County home, a visitor or a site consultant for an expanding corporation, our goal is to enhance your awareness of Clay County’s resources, services and programs by accessing information online through our website.
I encourage you to use this site as your starting point. Thank you for visiting Clay County Government’s website, and we hope you utilize the site to meet your needs and learn more about our vibrant County.
Gayward Hendry, Chairman
Clay County Board of Commissioners
