This was the largest park acquired during the 1920s for which condemnation proceedings were authorized in 1926 and concluded in 1934. This is an elongated tract of 145 acres that extends along the bank of the River des Peres from Weber Road to Lansdowne. Much of its improvement was accomplished with W.P.A. funds in the late 1930s. About 1956, a 10.76-acre addition to the park was developed.
