April 21, 2015 — On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, Forest Park Forever will host the Grand Opening Celebration of the Festival & Parking Plaza at the Upper Muny. This free community event will feature live music, local food-truck fare and beverages available for purchase, and fun family activities.
In fall 2014, construction began on enhancing this 11-acre parking lot and special event space that sits above The Muny Amphitheater. The project, in line with the long-term Forest Park Master Plan developed in 1995, is transforming what has been a much-used but neglected asphalt parking lot into a more sustainable, vibrant Festival & Parking Plaza that better meets the needs of the space’s half-million annual users.
Visitors — as well as Park and City leaders — will be among the very first to see the most comprehensive restoration project in Forest Park in half a decade. This major capital project features 25,000 SQF of new green space, pedestrian walkways, new accommodations for festivals and more. The project has been funded by private contributions to Forest Park Forever.
- RSVPs are not required, but those who wish to can RSVP on Facebook.
