The St. Louis Place Park located on a long, narrow tract of land north of the site of the old reservoir was donated to the city in 1850 by Governor John Miller, John O'Fallon, Louis LaBeaume and others. At that time, it was 2,000 feet long and covered about eleven acres. The park was enclosed and improved in 1865 and five years later, extensive improvement of its north end was made. A City Ordinance in November, 1887 extended St. Louis Place Park southwardly through the old reservoir property to Maiden Lane leaving North Market open. This increased the park area, extending northward to Hebert Street, to 14.13 acres. A statue of Friedrich von Schiller was removed from the park and later re-erected in Memorial Plaza in 1975.
