Don Robinson State Park Opens to Public
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), June 4, 2017 - Visitors and residents can enjoy exploring the newly dedicated Don Robinson State Park.
The new state park, dedicated on Friday, June 2, is the result of the generosity of Don Robinson, who spent his lifetime acquiring the rugged and wooded countryside in Jefferson County. It was his wish that after his death, his personal sanctuary would become part of the Missouri state park system.
Missouri State Parks is celebrating 100 years in 2017. The Don Robinson State Park is considered among Missouri's best places to conserve native wildlife and habitat. The land is in the upper watershed of the LaBarque Creek, a high quality stream that supports 42 species of fish. The park includes a network of sandstone cliffs and box canyons, outcrops, shelter caves, glades and forests as well as many animals, songbirds and approximately 650 species of plants.
In addition to the trails, the park features a peaceful day-use area with individual picnic tables and a picnic shelter. The park also includes the home where Robinson lived and welcomed frequent visitors to his wooded retreat.
To reach the park from Interstate 44 in Eureka, visitors should head south on Highway 109, turn right on Highway F, left on Highway FF (it becomes Lynch Road once it reaches Jefferson County), right on Byrnesville Road and then right into the park. For more information about the event, call 636-257-3788. For more information on state parks and historic sites, visit http://mostateparks.com. Missouri State Parks is a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
