(corner of Skinker and Etzel)
What: free food from area food trucks, basketball activities, and music and dance performances
Great Rivers Greenway is partnering with the National Recreation and Park Association, Beyond Housing and the City of Wellston to transform a vacant lot at the corner of Skinker and Etzel into a vibrant community park. Named after the mascot of the former Wellston High School, Trojan Park aims to create a safe place for families to gather and play.
The park will include a family pavilion, splash plaza, butterfly gardens and play/fitness/creative equipment for all ages. The new park will also feature a full size basketball and volleyball court.
Special thanks to the following vendors and companies for making this project possible, including the St. Louis County Municipal Grant Commission:
