On Thursday, May 11, FOCUS St. Louis presented their What's Right with the Region awards to 20 incredible organizations, initiatives and individuals. Forest Park Forever and the City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry were honored to be among them, receiving an award in the Fostering Regional Cooperation category.
Friday, May 5 was a gorgeous day to be in Forest Park – and a perfect day for golf! The Young Friends of Forest Park Forever welcomed almost 100 golfers to the greens of Probstein Golf Course for our second annual golf tournament.
Apotheosis of Saint Louis – the statue of this city's namesake that stands at the top of Art Hill – will be getting some much-needed attention over the next few weeks. King Louis IX has been looking out over Forest Park since 1906, and the statue hasn't been restored since 1998.
In recent months, two Forest Park restoration projects have advanced through the complete 9-step review process with the Forest Park Advisory Board. This Mayor-appointed board meets monthly to review and provide feedback on plans for restoration projects in Forest Park, which originate from the comprehensive Forest Park Master Plan completed in the mid-1990s.
Each year, FOCUS St. Louis honors the efforts of 20 individuals, organizations or initiatives that promote improvements in our community through their What's Right With the Region! awards. We are very excited to announce that our partnership with the City of St. Louis has been recognized this year in the Fostering Regional Cooperation category!
