Great Rivers Greenway (GRG) makes the St. Louis region a more vibrant place to live, work and play by developing a network of greenways to connect people to their rivers, parks and communities.  “Great Rivers Greenway is leading a major public-private partnership to establish the conceptual plan for the Chouteau Greenway, which will connect Washington University & Forest Park to the Washington University Medical Center & BJC, the Cortex Innovation Community, the Foundry and Armory projects, Grand Center Arts District, Saint Louis University, Harris-Stowe State University, Downtown & the Gateway Arch, with spurs north and south and many other destinations along the way, such as area neighborhoods, employment centers, parks, transit, and dozens of cultural and educational institutions. The international design competition process, going on now, will create a conceptual design for the Chouteau Greenway.”

As part of this project, they are looking for community input.  There will be an informational session Thursday, November 30th at 5:30 p.m. at the Schlafly Public Library (225 North Euclid).  GRG are also conducting an online survey  here where residents, businesses, and workers can give input on what they would like to see happen.

Forest Park Southeast Dog Park Grand Opening Saturday, June 11th

June 7, 2016 in Central West End, Forest Park Southeast, grove, Infrastructure, Park Central Development, Shaw, st louis by Gelinda

The following post is from: Forest Park Southeast – Park Central Development

Come join us for a ribbon cutting celebration this Saturday, June 11th at 11 a.m. for the newest dog park in the City of St. Louis located in Chouteau Park, at the intersection of Chouteau and Newstead.

The effort to open a dog park in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood began in 2012 when a group of local residents formed a committee dedicated to creating an urban green space for residents to exercise their dogs and socialize with neighbors. After several years of fundraising, scouting out locations, and endless amounts of paperwork, we are proud to finally be able to offer this amenity to our neighbors, not just in Forest Park Southeast but also in surrounding areas including the Central West End, Tower Grove South and East, Shaw, Dogtown, the Hill and Southwest Garden. Apart from providing a space for dogs and their owners to play, we hope that the dog park will help foster a sense of community and make our neighborhood an even better place to live.

Registration is required for your dog to play, so be sure to bring your dog’s vaccination records, proof of address for resident rates, and payment (fees are listed on website). Dog park registration is available at Park Central office on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8-5pm. Forms and more information can be found at http://www.fpsedogpark.com/.

First Installment of Grove “Light Art Project” coming this weekend

April 15, 2016 in Forest Park Southeast, grove, Infrastructure, Park Central Development, st louis by Gelinda

The following post is from: Forest Park Southeast – Park Central Development

St. Louis’ Grove neighborhood is a premiere destination to shop, eat and play and on the weekend of April 15 the first section of the much anticipated “Light Art Project” will be installed.

The Grove neighborhood, home to a diverse range of businesses, is anchored by two grand entrance signs on Manchester Avenue.  Park Central Development staff have been working with the Grove Community Improvement District to develop a visually appealing light display to connect the two entrances.  Taking a cue from holiday displays in China and Europe, the lighting will increase the pedestrian experience of the district and connect the two book-end Grove signs.

Europe and China examples

Temporary light displays in Europe and China. 

The first lighting installation will be at the intersection of Manchester and Tower Grove with 9 more locations to follow.  Funding for 5 of these lighting locations has been secured through commitments from the City of St. Louis, the Grove Community Improvement District (CID), as well as several financial gifts from Grove businesses and property owners.  The year-round lighting display will change in color and sequence for holidays, festivals, and seasons encouraging visitors to stroll up and down the Grove and enjoy the eclectic neighborhood.

Brooks Goedeker, Executive Director for Park Central stated that, “We hope the LED “light art” display will become one of the must see St. Louis attractions for out-of-towners and St. Louisans alike.  The Grove has become a destination where patrons stroll up and down the street visiting multiple business on each visit.  The hope is that the lights will encourage this and add to the area’s appeal.”
