Chouteau Park: What do you want to see happen?

June 21, 2017 in Uncategorized by Adam

Park Central Development and PGAV are conducting a survey about Chouteau Park.  Please take a few minutes to share your opinions about what you’d like to see happen in future developments.  Should we prioritize more trees and/or a water feature?  A basketball court and/or picnic tables?  We want to hear from you!  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/chouteaupark

For inspiration, here’s an old design that was created before the FPSE Dog Park.  This earlier plan called for large trees to form a shaded area called “The Grove.”  However, the shade tree saplings died and were replaced by crab apples, and then the dog park was added.

Some aspects of this earlier plan have remained the same, including the location of the sidewalks, multipurpose field, and hill.  Other aspects were changed or never happened, such as the cafe, wildflower garden, and water feature.

And what about the concrete mounds?  They are intended to be the beginning of an “adventure playscape.”  They never got the soft rubber coating that the initial plan intended.

Where should we go from here?  Please take a moment and share your ideas!

Summer Plans!

June 16, 2017 in Uncategorized by Adam

Hi neighbors,

Due to the hot weather predicted next week, we have rescheduled the Outdoor Movie Night (see below).  Also, given that Adam’s School is closed for the summer break, we will not be able to meet in our usual location.  So here’s the plan for the next few months:
  • June 20th at 6:45pm:  Join us for an informal social hour at Urban Chestnut (4465 Manchester).  You can buy dinner or drinks, or just stop by to say hi!
  • July 18th at 6:45pm:  Join us for an Ice Cream Social in Chouteau Park (Newstead and Chouteau).  Refreshments provided.
  • August (date TBD):  Join us for the National Night Out in Chouteau Park (typically a Kick Ball game and potluck).
  • September (date TBD):  Outdoor Movie Night in Chouteau Park

Hope to see you soon,

FPSE Neighborhood Association​
