We are excited to share with you our plans for a small neighborhood park being constructed near your residence. City staff will begin work this week to enlarge the green space at the intersection of Bennett Ave and Laclede Station Road in order to install a passive park memorializing the Bennett Avenue Historic District. The park will include landscaping, benches, and an informational sign honoring tennis star Arthur Ashe, and well-known tennis coach Richard Hudlin, who once resided at 1221 Laclede Station Road.
Over the next several weeks, you may see work crews on-site removing sections of the street and sidewalk, forming new sidewalks and curbs, installing irrigation, installing an ornamental fence, and planting landscape plants and trees.
