Emerson Central Fields to Reopen in April
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), March 10, 2019 - Forest Park Forever and the City of St. Louis are planning a special celebration, April 25, at the newly renovated Central Fields. The free event, from 4:30 - 7:00 p.m. will include family-friendly activities, food trucks, soccer and rugby games, live music and hot air balloons.

The 30-acre Forest Park site has undergone $5.8 million of donor-supported improvements since it went under construction in June 2017. The improvements have transformed this 'central' part of Forest Park site for much-improved experience for visitors including:

  • A new pavilion, a new concession area and new restrooms
  • The field surface has been completely rebuilt, with re-graded soil for better drainage, a new smart irrigation system for healthier turf, four new soccer fields and three new rugby fields
  • New trails and sidewalks
  • New bike racks and drinking fountains
  • New trees, attractive landscaping and a new entry plaza
"Central Fields has long been a popular location in Forest Park," said Greg Hayes, Director of Parks, Recreation & Forestry for the City of St. Louis. "With this significant project, we have dramatically improved the experience for both soccer and rugby players as well as all those attending major events like the Great Forest Park Balloon Race. We are proud to share in the St. Louis community's excitement with this great Park project that will provide enjoyment to all in the future."

"We can't wait for the St. Louis community to experience the new Emerson Central Fields," said Lesley S. Hoffarth, P.E., President and Executive Director of Forest Park Forever. "While millions of St. Louisans have enjoyed these fields over many decades, the time had come to invest in restoring and improving the fields and building welcoming new facilities for the site's many users. I would like to thank our City of St. Louis partners and our generous donors, whose remarkable support of the Forever campaign made this project possible."

"Forest Park is truly a unique asset for our region that we should never take for granted," said Emerson Chairman and CEO David Farr. "As a company that has called the St. Louis region our headquarters and home for 128 years, we know how important Forest Park is to the community's identity and as a place that brings people together. We are proud to support the Forever campaign, and we look forward to the new Emerson Central Fields creating great memories for Forest Park visitors in the years ahead."
