Forest Park Forever announces $10.5 million plan to restore three lakes, add trees and overlook

Forest Park Forever and the city of St. Louis on Monday released detailed plans and renderings for a donor-funded $10.5 million project that will transform the three lakes and the areas around them at the eastern end of the park.

Work will start in the first half of 2020 and will take 18 to 24 months to finish.

The work includes building a new visitor overlook and a waterfall at Jefferson Lake, planting nearly 500 new trees, improving access to the lake shorelines, and making underground and storm water improvements to reduce water use.
