2019 Des Peres Park ImprovementsImprovements to Des Peres Park in 2019 include six concrete lighted tennis courts, three pickleball courts, a parking lot and a unisex restroom. The city plans to send out construction bids in March 2019, with approval in April. Construction would then begin in May and last through the summer.
Des Peres Parks was established with a 20 year bond issue in 1973. Located on what was the Lutheran Orphanage property, the 42.5 acre park is home to City Hall and numerous recreational facilities. The trails and lake are among the most popular features in the park.
