Memorial Park

 Memorialpark

Project Status: Planning Phase

Project Overview: A Mini Master planning process was conducted in 2015. A significant component of that plan involved a community center building to be built and managed by a partner organization. The City has been informed that the partner no longer has the capacity to construct and manage a community center at this location. Due to the significant nature the elimination of a potential community center will have on the location, a new master plan is needed to properly align resources and park function with community need. At this time, the timeframe for conducting a new master plan at Memorial Park is not defined but would not be conducted until year 2020 at the earliest. Subsequent construction would occur at least 2 years after completion of the master plan.

Project Background: Memorial Park is one of four qualifying parks for the Grand Avenue Parks Fund.  The fund is part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Project supported by the 1/2 and 1/2 tax fund.  This specially designated funding will provide "destination-level" investments to qualifying parks.  The Grand Avenue Parks Fund invests in community partnerships with user groups and residents to co-create and co-manage outdoor recreation experiences in the neighborhoods along the corridor.  The Grand Avenue Parks Fund will provide 1:1 match grants up to $550,000 per park.

Budget: Up to $500,000

Funding Source: 1/2 and 1/2 funding

Estimated Completion Date: Undetermined
