Tower Grove Park – East Stream Renovation

Acknowledging the natural history of the land and celebrating its original inhabitants, the Osage Nation.

LJC is working to restore a buried stream on the east end of Tower Grove Park, one of seven parks in the US recognized as a National Historic Landmark. Opened to the public in 1872, the Park is at the center of some of the region’s most socioeconomically diverse and densely populated neighborhoods. The original gardenesque design of the Park dating to 1867 shows three streams, two currently above ground. This third stream was placed underground by the city sewer district before 1913. This project aims to restore the Park’s easternmost stream to its original above-ground alignment as a cultural landscape.
