I bet most of you youngsters have never even heard of the Meramec Dam proposal. Back in the 1970s, the Corp of Engineers had actually started construction of a 180' high dam at Sullivan, which would have created a 23,000 acre lake less than an hour away from St. Louis. It would have prevented the ki...
Looks good, although I'm just a bit concerned that it will look too industrial/garage-like. I trust the finished product will be more refined-looking.

Either way, it's nice to see what's apparently concrete construction, as opposed to that god-awful wood-frame crap.

They'll be left to rot naturally, and some of the root systems below ground are being exposed. I believe the art department is directing the project. I saw some pretty cool p...

I'm always amazed at what a fantastic job Forest Park Forever has done with our park; it really is beautiful. Another thing that strikes me is how people seem to feel safe in FP. Even in the evening hours, you see single women, elderly folks, etc. out walking, running and just relaxing. What an amaz...
Construction fence is going up; trees are coming down.
